Overview

Process mapping is a technique used to create visual diagrams of business and workflow processes and can include people and resources involved. The core aims of process mapping is to identify waste, streamline processes and to develop a greater understanding of workflows.

Process maps can be built quickly depending on complexity and can help with:

  • assessing areas of improvement
  • easily demonstrating processes to others
  • for developing process documentation
  • fulfilling process-based requirements such as those of ISO 9001
  • project planning

This half-day Process Mapping Training Course will equip delegates with the necessary skills required to map out processes, allowing them to identify problems and create more streamlined processes. The course is highly suitable for process improvement managers and improvement teams in addition to quality practitioners as it can help them to fulfil ISO 9001 process mapping requirements.
