Before you create your process, you should scope the project and collect all the necessary data. This section includes tips on scoping and provides a sample process planning table for the Vendor Request process.
Keep your processes small and uncomplicated, especially if it is your first time creating a process. Symantec recommends creating phases for processes rather than creating a huge process initially. Using this method can make your processes more useful and successful.
