Documenting processes - once established, it should be handed off. Base requirements:

  1. KISS - the process is easy to understand
  2. Lean - it is easy to implement the process
  3. Reviewable/refinable by outsiders - Process description can be viewed by others.
  4. Work product is verifiable - an outsider can audit the process easily, can find out who is doing the process. Results of implementing the process are easily visible.
  5. Requirements are documented - conditions of satisfaction
  6. Time Requirements - how long it takes to do the process, step by step
  7. Outcomes - intended outcomes are delineated
  8. Organizational ecology shown - how process relates to other processes?.
