I lack serious knowledge about Workflows when it comes to SharePoint.  I've worked with them briefly, but not nearly as much as I should have.  Recently I was asked a pretty basic SharePoint workflow question which forced me to find out what workflows come out of the box with SharePoint.  Here is a listing of the out of the box SharePoint workflows taken from the SharePoint Team Blog.

Approval Routes a document for approval. Approvers can approve or reject the document, reassign the approval task, or request changes to the document.
Collect Feedback Routes a document for review. Reviewers can provide feedback, which is compiled and sent to the document owner when the workflow has completed.
Collect Signatures Gathers signatures needed to complete an Office document. This workflow can be started only from within an Office client.
Disposition Approval Manages document expiration and retention by allowing participants to decide whether to retain or delete expired documents.
Group Approval Similar to the Approval workflow, but uses a designated document library and offers a personalized view of the approval process(es) in which a user is participating. This workflow provides a hierarchical organization chart from which to select the approvers and allows the approvers to use a stamp control instead of a signature. This solution was designed specifically for East Asian Markets.
Translation Management Manages document translation by creating copies of the document to be translated and assigning translation tasks to translators.
Issue Tracking Manages the issue tracking process by creating tasks for Active issues assigned to users who own to a given issue. When the task related to an issue is complete hence resolving the issue, the creator of the issue is assigned a review task so that the issue can be closed.
