Develop Workflow Processes

Develop workflow processes

A well-designed work flow can help organizations manage tasks logically and efficiently. Workflows have been used since the beginning of industrial revolution. Henry Gantt’s work influenced several techniques that assist with project management and industrial engineering.

Workflows ease employee stress by eliminating unnecessary steps or by rearranging them in a way that isn’t logical. They also help managers spend more time with their employees, and less time managing. Companies with well-established workflows are more likely to have higher morale and productivity.

When developing a business workflow start by clearly laying your goals and defining all the actions that must be taken to meet the goals. Then, you should enumerate and describe each step of the process to ensure that each element is included. This stage also includes determining the workflow’s dependencies, and arranging its sequence in a rational manner. Consider splitting the main workflow into sub-workflows which are distinct but crucial to the success of your project.

Each task should be assigned to a specific person or team and ensure that you clearly define the roles of each person or team member. This boosts accountability and helps ensure smooth transitions. Then, you should set a time for when you’ll expect the process to be completed. During this time, monitor each step to determine how long it takes and compare that with your estimates. Try to ensure a flawless, high-quality final product that achieves all of your goals while keeping your employees happy. Don’t stop there, either: regularly collect feedback and review the workflow to identify efficiencies, inefficiencies, or problems to address.
