What is Business Process Diagram (BPD)?

Business process diagram is designed to be readily understandable by all business stakeholders.

A major goal for the development of BPMN was to create a simple and understandable notation for creating Business Process models, while providing the semantics and underlying mechanisms to handle the complexity inherent in Business Processes. Thus, BPMN had become the most widely used notation for creating BPD.
