A picture is worth a thousand words. Many of us are very visual people.
Process Maps make visible the process flow from a client/customer perspective. Process flow includes the flow of documents, material, and information.
Process Maps can give us a strategic level of detail that tells what is happening.
Once mapped, the documented processes can be reviewed step-by-step to discover critical items:
- Where we lack information
- Where we need clarification on a process
- Input/output requirements
