Make a swimlane diagram in Lucidchart

Swimlanes are valuable tools for evaluating business process flows and identifying roadblocks within them. Drawing them in Lucidchart is effortless. Simply drag out a swimlane shape, and then label each lane so that it corresponds to a team or individual involved in the process. Draw your flowchart inside a swimlane shape, matching up each step in the process to its corresponding lane. To get started on swimlanes in Lucidchart, try filling out one of our free templates below.
