Again I am taking some quotes and applying them in the context of workflow.
“The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed –
it is a process of elimination.”
– Elbert Hubbard
I like this quote and it is in essence what process reengineering is all about.
Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than in the one where they sprang up.
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
Although perhaps not immediately apparent this is a key benefit inherent in workflow systems. That one initial person or team can create something but that it can be improved upon by others.
