This book helped me greatly while I was searching for a clean notation for communicating workflows within dev teams, operational teams, and with execs. The authors provide an opinionated guide to which parts of BPMN are useful as well as a style that you can adopt from day 1.

The authors also provide some great free tools for building models.
