The acronym SIPOC stands for Suppliers (sources), Input, Process, Output, and Customers. A SIPOC diagram maps a process at a high level by identifying the potential gaps between suppliers and input specifications and between customers and output specifications, and thereby defines the scope of process improvement activities.

This visual tool allows you to document the working process from beginning to end. Everyone will see the project development in the same light, at the same time. When you use the SIPOC diagram template, it’s easy to communicate and discuss the process visually and at a high level, and to define the scope of your improvement efforts.

SIPOC identifies feedback and feed-forward loops between customers, suppliers, and the processes, and jump-starts the team to think in terms of cause and effect.

You should try Miro to create your SIPOC diagram because it allows you to:
  • Download and print your filled-out template.
  • Make a presentation right on the board.
  • Give your distributed teammates real-time access to the board – now everyone can discuss it, as if they were all in one room.
  • Add sticky notes, tags, and mentions to colleagues to get their feedback faster.
  • Use a wide list of integrations to boost your collaboration and work process.
Tip: To create a powerful SIPOC diagram, start with the center (Process) of the table, then move to Output and Customers, identify Input, and finish it with Sources (suppliers) of the process.
