A workflow is a process or a series of pre-established steps that help organize and coordinate work between different actors. It is often a method used to automate, standardize and optimize the tasks and processes of a company. Workflows can be used in different contexts, such as project management, production, supply chain or human resource management. They can be manual or automated, and are often associated with specific software tools that allow the progress of tasks to be monitored and the various stages of the process to be managed.
