What is workflow management?

A workflow is the process of how you get stuff done. It’s a system that makes work more efficient while keeping everyone on the same page. Workflow management is all about building and tracking these processes. Asana is like a home base for all your workflows: use it as a tool to create workflows and track your team’s work. Here are some examples of common workflows:

Tips for establishing great workflow management

Decide how and when to communicate

To make sure everyone’s on the same page, set communication guidelines in advance, give everyone clarity on higher level goals, and encourage team collaboration.

Streamline the things you do regularly

From daily task management to approval processes, think about all the places where you can save time on recurring work and repetitive tasks with workflow automation.

Create a customizable internal knowledge base

Make document management easy for collaborators to access information by creating a user friendly central database of resources.

Define responsibilities and expectations at the start

To avoid bottlenecks, be sure to answer these questions for any custom workflow: What are the exact deliverables? Who’s responsible for each piece of work? When is each task due?

Keep your workflow simple and make real time adjustments

Avoid creating overly complex workflows. To start, keep it simple and check in regularly with your stakeholders to make any necessary adjustments.

Include a step for goal setting in your team's workflow

Goal setting helps team members understand how their work supports company objectives and business processes.
