What is a Workflow?

A workflow is like a recipe for finishing a task. It tells you the ingredients, steps to take, and the order to do them, like making a sandwich: get bread, add fillings, and put bread on top.Making a sandwich is a relatively easy task as it can be done by a single person, with very few tools. Workflows in businesses however, can be complex, boring, error prone and time consuming. They usually involve many tasks requiring different areas of expertise and different apps to achieve them.
