How to create a process map

  1. Determine what process you want to map out

    Figure out the process you want to map out, and loop in those involved with executing the process as you gather information and start building your process map.

  2. Draw a baseline process map with each step included

    Drag and drop shapes onto your Lucidchart canvas for every step and arrange them in your desired order. Use lines to connect your steps with arrows indicating the process flow.

  3. Format and style

    Use containers and swimlanes to highlight concurrent tasks or specific roles in the process. You can also color-code specific shapes to make any steps more distinct.

  4. Analyze and share your diagram to identify areas for improvement

    Share your baseline process map with stakeholders to better identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in your proposed process. Then use layers to create an improved process to deal with those inefficiencies.

  5. Implement, publish, and monitor improvements

    Once you’ve finalized your process, you can embed your process map for reference on Lucidchart-integrated platforms like Confluence, Jira, G Suite, and more. Make additional improvements as needed.
