Kicking off a SharePoint Workflow

Working with a SharePoint tool that requires Workflows to be kicked off for setting fields etc.

Workflows can be trigerred manually asp, on update or on add.

My question is, is there any tricks to other ways to get workflows to kick off?  For example I have multiple different update screens that server different functions on the same list but I would prefer that the same workflow not kick off each time.

list=LIST1 Form-Update1 Workflow-LIST1UPD1
list=LIST1 Form-Update2 Workflow-LIST1UPD2

Can this be achieved?

You could add an extra field which gets updated by a form.
Add a workflow which chooses which workflow gets used.

You can also trigger a workflow through code, but it is not particularly easy.
myTeamSite.Site.WorkflowManager.StartWorkflow(
                                                                this._listItemObject,
                                                                this._workflowAssociationObject,
                                                                instantiationFormData);
