    Hello,

    I'm starting a conversation with a colleague who had briefly mentioned some kind of new process before. What would be an informal and short expression to start the conversation by asking about that process with an implication that I want him to elaborate on it?

    So, what is all about this new process?
    So, what is about this new process?

    Do these work?

    Thanks!

    You may be thinking of 'So, what's this new process all about?' This is very informal and chatty.

    Or 'Tell me about this new process'.

    These don't really work well, although I think you would be understood.

    I would use something like:

    Tell me about this new process.
    Tell me about the new process you mentioned yesterday / last week / etc.

    "Tell me..." might sound a bit like a command so you you use a "softer" expressions such as:

    I'd love to hear more about the new process you mentioned yesterday / last week / etc.
    Would you have time to tell me about the new process you mentioned yesterday / last week / etc.

    So what's the story with this new process? might be another colloquial option.
