The first task in developing a procedure is to prepare a flowchart of the current practice. This is done with the active contribution of staff who do the task or know most about the task. The procedure author/facilitator leads the group and prepares a rough flowchart of the current process. The flowchart emerging in the meeting should be rich in detail through the contributions of all participants, but will also be a mess -- marked up with deletions, changes, and notes added as a result of the groups inputs. Seldom can this be done in one meeting unless the process is simple. All participants should bring any work instructions and check sheets that they use or have concerning the process to the meeting for reference and use in the discussion and to be included in the project file for future reference.

Some might think that it is lazy to put so many graphics into a research paper, rather than just explaining the process in words. It turns out that this is not the case because the reason for writing a manual, textbook, or technical paper is to give out information, instruction, and knowledge that will be retained and comprehended by the reader. Remember our job as technical writers is to put forth information. If our reader fails to comprehend that information we have wasted our time, and their time. I hope you will please consider all this.
Business processes are diagrammed through the use of flow charts. These charts are not just for businesses, normally, it could also be used in different processes including the programming languages systems, management systems, decision-support system, etc. These flow charts are perfectly useful in keeping the manager or head and the members of the organization aware of what is to be done every now and then. Flow charts may vary according to what kind of process is being done in a company; and of course, in a flow chart, there would be different groups that will be working to form a whole system.
