First and foremost, workflow is a human activity that is made by and for those who use it: workflow is something that can easily be handled and understood by human beings.

Well, that sounds good, but the problems start to occur when you ask people to consider workflow in their organization, and there are usually a few main issues to deal with:
- You'll find that people are normally experts in their own fields—there are often very few people who have an overview of the whole process that you're trying to map.
- Sections of a large organization will often have different ways of carrying out the same overall process.
- People don't really like to be told how to do their jobs—they especially don't like to have any extra processes imposed on them for now obvious reason—well, would you?
- Talk of 'improved utilization of resources', 'improved performance monitoring', and such like can soon alienate the staff who are going to be using the system. They'll soon start using terms such as 'Big Brother'.
