There are plenty of reasons to map out a process: to train new employees, to analyze your process and trim unnecessary steps, to demonstrate policy compliance during an audit, to standardize workflows in order to scale your business.

Whatever your reason, show—don’t tell—the steps of your workflow with a process map. Process mapping will help others understand and remember the process more easily, and it’ll bring to light places where you can make the process more efficient.

Create a professional visual in no time with our process map templates below.
