The more ways you can represent a problem, the more perspectives you get to solve it

Here are some diagrams you can use to frame a problem from different angles:

  • Block diagrams to illustrate concepts built by objects, their attributes and interrelationships.
  • Flow diagrams to describe the steps on a process, their connections and flow conditions.

  • Hierarchy diagrams to draw the relation between people, places and concepts.
  • Mind maps illustrates the connections between concepts, objects, ideas, channels, people, and places within a particular context.
