Process Mapping Tips
Remember it's dynamic.
- Things will come up you must add.
- Use pencils with erasers.
- Don't be afraid to change your work
- Just assume you will need to change it as you realize things.
Microsoft Visio
- Has a program for making process maps
- Very simple and very intuitive.
Post-It Notes
- Are able to move around steps before finalizing maps.
Be Brief
- Do not make each step longer than a few words.
- Remember that the end goal is to improve the process. By dividing each action into as many steps as possible, it will be easier to eliminate waste.
Get Feedback
- Have someone else look over your map.
- They will point out areas that are not as clear as they need to be.
- Remember that not everybody thinks the way you do.
- Like in most reports/project/papers, feedback improves your process map.
