Why Workflows Work
What exactly is a workflow? Loosely defined, a workflow is a set of tasks that are grouped chronologically into processes. Workflows often also include a set of people and/or resources necessary to complete those tasks. Linking all of this together are the interactions among the tasks, the people, and the resources.
So why is a good workflow critical to business performance? Well, a properly developed workflow can help streamline and even automate repeatable business tasks and objectives, which in turn minimizes the room for errors while increasing efficiency.
As a result, a properly developed workflow dramatically improves the performance of your business. Because of a well-designed workflow, managers can make quicker and smarter decisions, and employees are empowered to be more productive. Implemented correctly, workflows assist with increased accountability and help to reduce micromanagement by clearly outlining goals and tasks that need to be accomplished with actionable instructions.
Micromanagement, in general, comes along with a lot of problems. Employees hate being micromanaged, and most managers themselves actually hate being a micromanager. Not to mention the amount of time wasted looking over an employee's shoulder. When the manager and employees have a clear goal they can work towards together, productivity increases, as does the relationship between all levels of your company. And if an error occurs during the workflow, every employee on board can see the problem and is able to address it, creating a culture of collaboration which increases productivity and reduces downtime.
A good workflow also assists with identifying redundancies within a firm's performance. Within most pre-existing processes, there are countless amounts of unnecessary tasks that take place throughout a given workday. A solidly developed workflow gives one better insight into what those tasks are, allowing management to determine what’s truly necessary. By identifying and eliminating redundant tasks, employees can focus on what matters and produce more value for the firm and contribute to its growth and performance. Plus, thanks to the ability to analyze your workflow, you can identify areas for improvement, which will improve the company's ability to meet its goals.
Having a properly developed workflow is critical for optimizing a firm’s performance. However, actually developing a workflow is no small feat. It's often considered to be tough, as it requires one to see the big picture while simultaneously paying attention to the hundreds of small details that go into it. Add in the fact that you still have to manage day-to-day operations, and you have a pretty significant and complex challenge on your hands.
