Chapter Six. Workflow Speeds Work Cycles

 

Never before have we had so little time in which to do so much.[*]

 
 --Franklin Roosevelt

Executive Summary

Workflow is the process by which people collaborate to develop assets within a content management system. It applies to situations where multiple people collaborate on a job, where wait-time is a significant proportion of the total job time, and where patterns of interaction are repeated frequently. Workflow improves productivity by minimizing the wait-time between successive steps, and it automates the business logic of an organization. This chapter shows how to codify a pattern of interaction into a workflow job specification.
