Process Flow Charts, Process Flow Diagrams, and Process Mapping Methodology are synonyms.

Process Flow Charts, Process Flow Diagrams, and Process Methodology will differ only based on what you are trying to accomplish.

  1. Why are you creating a process flow chart? (IT process maps are often data flow maps which are different than traditional process maps)
  2. Do you want "as is" or "to be" process map?
  3. Determine level of detail do you need in order to achieve your process mapping goals?
  4. Decide which software you will use?
    • None, just large sheets of paper
    • Excel, Word, PowerPoint
    • Visio
  5. Decide on just a few simple symbols (e.g. diamonds equal decision points or rectangle boxes equal activities?
  6. Hang process map on wall for everyone to see
  7. Review process at least quarterly
  8. Revise map as process changes
  9. Keep process map posted for 
    • new employees
    • suppliers to process
    • customers of process
    • current employees
  10. Share process flow chart with your internal or external customers and with your outside  suppliers or with internal suppliers
  11. Improve process continuously
  12. Assign someone to be responsible for process flow chart
