Gartner Glossary

Process Map

A process map is a tool that clarifies a set of tasks that must be repeated periodically by the finance team. Process maps help management to visually assign the optimal sequence of financial functions, such as issuing invoices, reconciling bank statements and drafting monthly financial reports. The map clearly describes when each task is performed, who is responsible, if any conditions should be met and what happens next.
