When planning projects and processes, it’s important to have a good roadmap to ensure that your team understands each step of the process and what role they play. The use of process mapping, or an exercise to document and analyze business processes and outcomes in the form of a flowchart, allows teams to create an easy-to-understand visual representation of a workflow that maximizes agility while reducing time and cost. 

By mapping out workflows into a flowchart, teams can quickly get a grasp on the different elements of a process, the order in which tasks take place, who is responsible for each part of the process, and how to better manage resources.

In addition to creating a better understanding of the entire process from start to finish, process mapping also simplifies the training process by allowing each team member to easily understand their individual roles and responsibilities, as well as their relationship with the roles and responsibilities of other team members.

That’s why Miro is a fantastic tool to help streamline your business’ processing mapping. Miro is an easy-to-use visual platform that allows teams to communicate, collaborate, and co-create within a single space, whether in the same office or across the world. Customizable tools such as live cursors, whiteboards, app integration, and sticky notes allow real-time documentation and identification of problems and solutions.

Because businesses have unique needs, Miro offers a variety of templates for different types of process maps, including simple flowcharts; SIPOC maps (Supplier, Input, Process, Output, and Consumer) that work through the process from beginning to end; Deployment or Swimlane maps that focus on which team or team member is responsible for what; Value Stream maps, which analyze any process with repeatable steps; and Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) maps that deconstructs a project’s scope with specific deliverables and activities in phases. Each of these maps serves a different purpose for your organization and provides unique insights into the business process mapping methodology.

Miro doesn’t just streamline processes, but also communication – by integrating with over 100 apps your business already uses including Asana, Google Docs, Smartsheet, Airtable, Zoom, Slack, Teams, and Webex, it can add visual context and collaboration to your team’s workspaces and remote meetings.

Your organization’s needs are unique. Global PMO Partners can integrate Miro into our Airtable and Smartsheet solutions to help your business streamline communication and enhance processes.
