In order to better understand business process analysis, and how it is done in real life, conduct a literature and web search on the topic. Using your favorite search engine or the Rasmussen Library, enter the terms “business process analysis.”
Then, in a 1-page paper, written in APA format using proper spelling/grammar, address the following:
1. Define Business Process Analysis.
2. Describe Process/Activity Flows and Activity Descriptions.
3. Keeping in mind what is involved in preparing final outcomes from a process analysis, evaluate the task of creating and using workflow diagrams to other methods such as a verbal description of a business process — how do they compare?
The articles you find in your search may not necessarily be healthcare examples. Rest assured that the process and tasks are similar, whether performed in a healthcare setting or in a different setting.
