Process is doing things in an orderly manner, that are either planned before starting or that might have developed eventually while doing so.
The difference between the former and the latter is that one is followed irrespective of each step’s result and the other is in the actions that are observed willingly at each one done.
Either way, we call a series of actions taken in order to achieve a particular end result is a process.
The only thing that matters is the result of the process which is to be achieved at the end, by doing such actions by having an understanding of the end result.
Well, the result may be either expected or not but at least if the process is done in a well-planned manner then the result will gradually be not like an unexpected one.
The word Process is derived from Old French – ‘proces’.
Wishing you a Happy processing and happy Christmas.
