Workflow Designing


I am new to PPM, just wondering if somebody could guide me regarding what points do I need to consider while creating steps of workflow?

- Time
When it is understood that certain step in Demand Management or Project Management will take considerable big amount of time, then the step should be a separate step in workflow.

- Responsibility
Steps require stakeholder to take decision should be separte, and separate for PM and separate for Business Analysts or any other users.

- Output
Steps that are having a unique output which can be considered as Deliverable should be an individual separate workflow step.

Apart from the above, can anybody specify what should I consider while creating workflow steps?

I'm provided details such as
process name, input, output and responsible
for the PMO methodology and I m asked to design a workflow for it.
