Designation of activities as a job description

 

aim

The naming of activities should always be used as a description of an activity to clarify what happens. Just mentioning the activity itself is not enough.

  
description

This rule relates to the naming of activities (tasks) in the process flow. For example, it is not enough to define "invoice verification" - what should happen here? Carry out invoice verification, approve invoice verification, document invoice verification, etc.? Such a description of activities significantly increases the readability and thus the usability of the process diagram.
