At this time of year in the north east, I get ready to put the skis on again, as I have a weekend job as PSIA instructor. The ski industry in recent years, has become dominated by lessons for children and young adults, 80% of lessons are given to that group.
So each year, at the mountain I ski at, I help new instructors find there way around the mountain using process maps as a guideline for what do next.
The same is true of our own processes internally, as you document your processes for your organization to change the way a process or procedure is complete, you may already have the template to distribute this to the rest of the organization.
By simply adding some graphics and color to the map, it can be made fun to read and use. Don’t forget it’s pretty easy to create a PDF so an electronic version of the map can be printed when you need it.
