How to Develop Workflow Processes

Workflow processes are an essential part of any project. They’re the steps that a task follows from beginning to completion. They help you plan, monitor and achieve important milestones by establishing a logical sequence of activities that can reduce the amount of time and effort required to complete the task.

Start by identifying your goals. Define what needs to be completed, who’s responsible for each task, and how many steps will each take. This will allow you to design a workflow that is tailored to your company’s requirements and objectives. This will improve efficiency and productivity, and will ensure the best results.

Next, you must determine the roles of your team members. Doing so helps you eliminate duplicate tasks and redundancies that consume time, resources and money. If, for example, your customer service team is spending a lot of time answering phone calls, but not responding to email requests, you may want to reallocate their workload to better meet your business requirements.

Finally, look at your workflow map to determine which areas of inefficiency can be eliminated. For instance when one of your workflow processes takes too long due to a team that is waiting for the insight of another change, it is possible to speed it up and improve customer and employee satisfaction.

Utilize interaction nodes to specify the options that users are presented with during the workflow process, such as approving or denying a record. You can also add nodes to stop the workflow until a specific event occurs, for example the response of a customer.
