Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected; (see the guidance document below for help in a flowchart design)
Explain the process you have diagrammed.
Include the required detail about the process as well as the metric that is currently used to measure the soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?
Describe any areas where improvements could occur and propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
