The Workflow of Workflow Is Improving Workflow


Here’s the visual representation of workflow. We have a series of states. Transitions between those states, that’s a workflow. They achieve the goal of of the workflow.


Now, let’s think about improving that workflow. Well, that’s a workflow, too. The workflow of workflow is improving workflow. To get from workflow to better workflow into even better workflow is a series of steps and obviously, one wants to creates a virtuous cycle in which you’re improving all aspects of workflow, both reducing errors, reducing variability, increasing speed, reducing cycle time, the amount of time it takes to get from the beginning to an end of a workflow and if you do that, you usually can increase volume of transactions. You’re trying to hit that goal, hit that target and do it with the least amount of resources.
