A Graham chart is like step by step instructions for assembly of a bicycle. For comparison purposes, other process mapping tools provide only a notice on the outside of the box 'Assembly Required'.

The Ben Graham Corporation, a pioneer in the process improvement arena, celebrates its sixtieth year helping other organizations understand and simplify their work processes. They attribute their longevity to a rock-solid product and a genuine respect for the people who do the work.
Their “rock-solid product” is their flowcharting method, designed to help people understand the flow of records through their organizations. This method is unique, displaying all the documents in a business process and revealing useful detail about each of these records – what data the record contains, how it is used, who uses it, where it is used, when it is used, where it is stored and if and when it is destroyed. An analyst who is familiar with the charting method can map and validate a complex process in a day or two.
A genuine respect for the people who do the work is reflected in the way consultants with the Ben Graham Corporation work with clients, training them how to prepare process maps and how to use their own people, the ones who do the work, to analyze those maps, thus building first-hand experience into the processes. Their goal is to arm their clients with the tools and method needed to manage their work processes with true continuous improvement. Over their sixty years, the Ben Graham Corporation has taught thousands of organizations across the United States and Canada their common-sense approach to process mapping and process analysis.
From independent consultant Michael Alberta, “It's simple, straightforward, easy to learn AND APPLY immediately, and the tool does not cost a lot of money. As workflow analysis and process improvement go - one of the best values out there. Allows a cross-functional team to design and implement the improvements (and this is the foundation of the Graham philosophy - the folks that have responsibilities in the process are involved in improving it).”
Client Bill Roach says, “A Graham chart is like step by step instructions for assembly of a bicycle. For comparison purposes, other process mapping tools provide only a notice on the outside of the box 'Assembly Required'."
The Ben Graham Corporation has provided process improvement training and consulting services continuously since 1953. Graham Process Mapping Software was introduced in 1990 and is now helping organizations on six continents build better business processes.
