I like to break processes down into the constituent tasks, and then for
each task see which of these buckets they fit into:

 |  Automatable  |  Needs    |  Needs human     |  Needs human   |
 |               |  human    |  with one        |  with general  |
 |               |  judgment |  specific skill  |  skillset      |

Then I look for ways that can help me move tasks from right-side buckets
towards the left.
