Corporations all around the world strive to become more efficient and productive.
When these workflows get executed efficiently, your business is also efficient, and vice versa: inefficient workflows will result in missed deadlines, lost opportunities, and losses in revenue, profits, and even reputation.
However, an organization and even a single team within the organization can consist of many people with disparate personalities and logical views.
Each team member might have a different idea on how to execute a task efficiently, and in many cases, there is not a single, one-size-fits-all answer. This can often lead to disputes and confusion, which can lead to inefficiencies and other issues.
So, how do you get your whole team and organization to perform a business process consistently in the most efficient way, every time?
The solution is a workflow model.
A workflow model, or workflow diagram, is a visual mapping for a workflow, a business process, a project, or a business case. By modeling a workflow accurately, everyone has the same vision and can execute it in the same way.
