Workflow charts, sometimes called workflow diagrams, show business process and tasks in an easy-to-understand visual. A chart that is well-designed provides a clear illustration of an end goal and all the critical stages of the process that lead to that result. With an accurate workflow chart, all the participants of a task are able to maintain an efficient system that keeps them on the same page at all times. This efficiency can then improve the overall business productivity.

Ideally, workflows are somewhat automated within an organization, creating a systematized pattern that increases productivity and efficiency for the business.
