Why use flowcharts?
A flowchart is a great way to communicate processes without using jargon or getting too technical.
Flowcharts are used primarily for explaining concepts to others who may not be well-versed in the subject matter. Since the process is laid out visually, it’s much easier to form solid understandings.
