Abstract

Disclosed is a very lightweight workflow process, particularly useful for small and medium businesses or within departments that do not possess skills or resources for more elaborate workflow procedures. The lightweight workflow is centered around a new kind of document, called a self actualizing document (SAD). SAD's contain the triggers to create a workflow process, as well as the conditions for workflow completion, and finally the outcome of the workflow for proof of completion.
