Mapping Performance

01 Jul

There are a number of very simple ways to map how you get tasks and work done in your teams.

1. Draw a diagram. This is basically a picture version of a task, like an idea sketched on the back of a napkin. It usually works best for broad-stroke overviews of a task, job, process or procedure.

2. Outline the task. This helps when you are dealing with more details and allows you more freedom to edit as you develop the map.

3.  Draw a flow diagram or flow chart. This is good to use when you are formally documenting work or are seeking approval for a change you want to make.

There are also much more complex tools for mapping work. Vizio and Mind Mapping come to mind. There are quite a number of tools to help you develop and correlate mind maps … standalone, over a network or on the internet.
