Providing a Company-wide Understanding of "How to Play a Certain Song"
Everyone in a company has a role in certain processes and this role is important to fulfill the process as a whole. This is very similar to a role in an orchestra. If the drummer is missing, the song sounds out of tune or cannot be performed at all, if there is no one else with the same skills and knowledge of the song who can jump in. Managing these roles for collaboration, aka the instruments used, and the knowledge to be documented for future iterations (i.e., the "notes" of a song) is the key to process management.
The purpose of modeling business processes is not just to have a visual appealing process model-it's about building understanding. Processes should be 'alive', providing a natural motivation for all employees to improve their processes and make day-to-day work easier, smoother, and faster.
