Flow Chart Diagrams can be used to illustrate business processes, system processes, and much more. They are frequently used in process improvement initiatives and IT projects to show the as-is and to-be states of the process.
This is a template for a very simple Flow Chart Diagram (also known as a Process Flow Diagram). Note that it is built in Microsoft Visio, VSD format. Visio does not come with most Microsoft Office installations.
This template only uses the basic flow chart diagram symbols:
- Rectangle for a Process Step
- Diamond for a Decision Step
- Tube for the Start and End Steps
- Annotation for Comments
For a flow chart with Swim Lanes, refer to a Cross Functional Flow Chart Diagram. To make the chart larger, drag the edges to extend the working space to the amount needed.
