What Is Business Process Mapping?

Enterprise process mapping is a visual illustration, or framework, of all the inputs, outputs, actions, decisions, and roles that comprise a process. By mapping each step in a business process, owners and employees access a comprehensive overview of everything involved in a process from beginning to end.

They can identify the who, what, where, when, how, and the why behind what does and doesn’t work. The benefits of business process mapping (BPM) help companies understand how predictable processes should function by highlighting essential activities within each step.

BPM is a trusted methodology used to solve business challenges by understanding the flow of activities, people, information, and resources. A clear visual representation can help businesses optimize inefficient workflows.
