whats wrong with my workflow

I have struggled over my workflow for a while. I have researched and read until I am cross eyed over this subject. i have both a 40d and 5d (not mkII).

here is my current workflow but i know it is not good and redundant ths why i am asking:

1) shoot raw
2) ingest then cull shots with breezebrowser (quick look)

3) Open with DPP - make exposure adjustments and white balance adjustments. along with batch sharpening
4) Convert to 16 bit TIFF

5) open ACR crop and straighten making minor adjustments if needed (I use recovery alot in acr along with minor tweaks in exposure if needed)

6) Open into PS cs4 and sharpen unless spot healing, noise reduction or etc is needed. I also vignette in ps if desired
7) save as jpg

As mentioned i know my workflow is flawed so be nice please.

I like using the features or acr and have downloaded the cs5 trail and really like it alot. However, i have read so many times that DPP does better job with detail so thats why i have the workflow i use.

Please help if you can..
