1. Problems with Organizing Processes?
In previous articles, I've discussed organizational

of process section, I broke for a 20-second daydream. I used that
quiet moment and your process mapping idea to sort through problems
at my last workplace. Problems solved. Alas, I'm not there to give
them the solution."
