Cross-Functional Map Template

Cross-Functional Map Template

Description
The cross-functional map shown above is part of process mapping. Process mapping consists of three different kinds of charts: Maps and flowcharts help people understand a work process. They make the tasks, interfaces, inputs, and outputs more visible. Analyzing a process map may help reduce cycle time, reduce costs, and increase productivity.

To download and modify this cross-functional map, see the Drawing Instructions below.

The above cross-functional map is a template that you can use to create your own map.

In a cross-functional map the customer, departments and external companies are listed on the left. They are separated by dotted lines so it is easy to see which department does which step. Each department has its own "swimming lane." The steps are connected by arrows to show the order the steps are performed. The flow is generally from left to right. The lines are labeled with the input or output of each step.
