We are a carpet manufacturing company and we are trying to document each and every process in the form of process flow, work instructions and SOPs, we need to understand what the correct way is of doing it.
Put a sheet of scenery paper affixed to a wall. Then, bring together a diverse team of people who as a whole know the company from different perspectives. On one end of the paper put a sticky note saying, "Customer in need" and on the other end put another sticky note saying "Customer served". Then, in a collaborative brainstorming session use sticky notes to describe what happens from "Customer in need" until "Customer served". Follow a rule: each sticky note has a verb + a noun. For example: Receive order; Check order; Confirm order; ...
When you feel you have already listed the essential activities, try to group them into what will be the organization's processes.
