CREATING A FLOWCHART TO ANALYSE WORKFLOW

Workflow analysis aims to determine workflow patterns that maximize the effective use of resources and minimize activities that do not add value. There are a variety of tools that can be used to analyze the workflow of processes and clarify potential avenues for eliminating waste. Flowcharts are a basic and commonly used workflow analysis method that can help highlight areas in need of streamlining.

In this Assignment, you select a common event that occurs regularly in your organization and create a flowchart representing the workflow. You analyze the process you have diagrammed and propose changes for improvement.

To prepare:

·         Identify a common, simple event that frequently occurs in your organization that you would like to evaluate.

·         Consider how you would design a flowchart to represent the current workflow.

·         Consider what metrics you would use to determine the effectiveness of the current workflow and identify areas of waste.

To complete:

Write a 4- to 5-page paper which includes the following:

·         Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected. (Review the Sample Workflow of Answering a Telephone in an Office document found in this week’s Learning Resources for an example.)

·         Next, in your paper:

o    Explain the process you have diagrammed.

o    For each step or decision point in the process, identify the following:

§  Who does this step? (It can be several people.)

§  What technology is used?

§  What policies and rules are involved in determining how, when, why, or where the step is executed?

§  What information is needed for the execution of this step?

o    Describe the metric that is currently used to measure the soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?

o    Describe any areas where improvements could occur and propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
