Thoughts on “A brief history of workflow”

‘workflow’ wrote this nice post about “A brief history of workflow“.

It is interesting, the usage of tools by humans (homo abilis) related to workflow is a nice approach, but it sounds more like “A brief history of standards (and specialization)”.

Maybe workflow history lies more into the “here is my recipe to sharpen sticks” or “here is my recipe to start a fire” (process/activity) and “hey, you, why don’t you sharpen sticks while we hunt, so that it’ll be easier for us to start a fire when we come back” (workflow).

An interesting reflection and a quick read anyway.
