Project Management Workflows. The Direct Path to Success.
How do you use workflows in your project management strategies? How to define your processes,
taking your infrastructure into account to manage your project with a single workflow?
Workflows consist of four elements: editors (roles), activities (tasks), results (products, artefacts) and states.
A project has editors that carry out activities in a specific order.
Activities produce results. A result may be a completed end product or an Excel sheet. Results then become the basis for subsequent activities.
Even if multiple editores are working on one result there should be one person responsible for the result.
In order for such a workflow to perform, results and activities must have states, e.g. in process or completed. This allows for date-related as well as content-related information on the progress of your project.
