Workflow Authoring Styles 

Windows Workflow Foundation supports multiple workflow-authoring styles, such as sequential, state machine, and data-driven. The sequential style is straightforward and useful for repetitive, predictable operations that are always the same. The state machine workflow style consists of a set of event-driven states. The data-driven style relies on data to determine whether or not certain activities are run based on a local data state.

For more information about these workflow authoring styles, see Sequential Workflows, State Machine Workflows, and Using Conditions in Workflows.
