A process is meant for a group of people to start doing something a particular way.
When a group of people follows the same thing, the group becomes more efficient.
Process gets a bad rap because the image of a hammer is immediately crystalized in our minds.
If everyone logs bugs in a different way that becomes hard to track, eventually the way that works for the team becomes the template, and the steps become the workflow that becomes the process.
A good process helps teams get past the stuff that is not their job and lets them focus on the work that is their job, where they add value and create substance.
If you find you’re building a process for one, it’s no longer a process, it’s an exception to the rule because your hope will be that one person will follow it, but in most cases they won’t and this is no longer a process problem.
