    Workflow enables you to set up workflow rules. A workflow rule identifies what kinds of record changes or additions trigger specified workflow actions, such as sending email alerts and updating record fields.
    Workflow rules and actions are associated with a specific object (and can cross objects only to update fields on a related master record).

    Visual Workflow
    Visual Workflow enables you to create flows, which are triggered by users rather than events. Unlike Workflow, which always executes rules and actions behind the scenes, Visual Workflow offers screens for displaying and collecting information from the user running the flow.
