Swimlanes in Skore (or lack thereof)

            What is it?

            Skore does not support swimlanes because we believe that
            • Swimlanes are not easy to read. Skore approach makes processes flow in a rather linear way which is more convenient. Swimlanes diagrams often have lines flowing in all direction
            • Swimlanes are not good with roles. Skore approach makes it easy to add as many roles as necessary. Having one swimlane per role forces to select a few roles because of the page real estate available. How many swimlanes with a line "Others..." have you seen?
            • Swimlanes are not good when several roles are involved in one activity. Skore approach supports adding as may roles as relevant to an activity
            • Swimlanes are not good with RACI / RATSI. It will have to be done in a third party tool; which will quickly be out of sync with the diagram. Skore supports RACI, RATSI, RAPID or any responsibility matrix you want to create

            What are swimlanes good at ?

            • Swimlanes are good at showing handover between roles. Skore has a built in feature which does that
