This tool is a list of Microsoft products that I've used to map processes for myself, and for clients. I tend to be cheap when it comes to buying technology, so I've played around with some of the free trials for the expensive ones. If it's not clear in the tool, I recommend Visio if you are willing to spend a little money (I'm not getting any payment for that), but you can easily do what this course teaches with MSWord and a little patience.

Tools to use for process mapping

This document shows the same process drawn in three different methods. I created it in Visio first because I find that allows me to think about the process rather than the format. In Shapes or SmartArt, I have to give more consideration to the tool than the process.
