Can I create a workflow in Site A1 and A2 and A3 and have it create a task in a task list in Site B?   The goal being that all of the project sites (A1, A2, A3) have tasks that we want consolidated on the development Site B for that manager to manage.   How would I do this?    I am using SP 2016 enterprise not 365.   

 

                Site A                              Site B

           /       |        \

Site A1    Site A2    Site A3 

 

any ideas are appreciated - thanks!

Yes, but you will need to make REST calls in your workflow in order to be able to access Site B
