About the Event

Presentation Description: An effective process map should serve as the central repository for all process knowledge. People in the organization should be in the habit of turning to the map anytime they need to learn more about the process, knowing they will they will either find what they need in the map itself or will use embedded hyperlinks to connect with external resources. And they should be able to do so whether or not they have a license for the software that was used to build the map. That’s a bold claim. Does it sound too good to be true? Do your process maps meet or fall short of this mark? During this session you’ll learn the PROs and CONs of four common process mapping styles and will get a head start on learning essential techniques for creating content-rich yet eminently readable process maps in Visio. We’ll explore the use of data fields associated with the shapes in a process map, leverage that data by visualizing it on the map, and examine ways to share process maps with people who don’t have a Visio license.
