5 Key Benefits of Process Mapping
A process map enables you to see all elements within a process. Clearly seeing what's required for each component provides insight into areas for improvement.
Effective process maps provide clarity around who does what within a process. This, in turn, eliminates confusion and promotes ownership for each task.
Because a process map gives an excellent overview of a process, it naturally doubles as a training tool for both new and existing team members. Utilising a process map for training ensures everyone is on the same page.
Process maps are a very effective resource for continuous improvement. They give a clear picture of each factor within a process, which enables you to see how it can be streamlined and become more efficient.
A process map gives everyone a sense of direction and purpose. Each member of the team is informed about what's required for success, and understands how to make the process work at an optimal level.
