Deployment Flowchart


This tool provides understanding of how a process is performed. It helps a team reach consensus on what activities are involved and who is responsible.


  1. Name the process.
  2. Decide start and finish points of the current process.
  3. list steps involved between the start and finish, using verbs, then nouns.
  4. Assign symbols (see below) and connect with arrows indicating the process flow.
  5. Divide your blank chart up into columns, one for each key person or group responsible for completion of the process. Draw the chart using the symbols and lines.
  6. Identify control points (places where something can be counted).
