Comments from Past Attendees

"Great class! Forced me to think in a linear systematical way."

"The class allowed me to have a greater understanding of methods for mapping department processes."

"This will become one of my responsibilities and now I have a much better understanding of how to create process flowcharts. Class is valuable because it is 'doing'."

"The time to practice creating the flowcharts was invaluable. It is difficult to find time to practice new skills during the work day."

"The class made a daunting subject matter seem easy to understand and embrace."

"Learning the difference between a Standard Operating Procedure, a Standard Operating Instruction, and a Desk Instruction, as well as the best practices in creation and design were priceless!"

"I have to create Desk Instructions for my daily tasks, so this will make the process much more efficient."
