Fishbone Diagram Template

Identify the root cause of issues and brainstorm solutions with our ready-to-use Fishbone Diagram.

Too often, organizations focus solely on problems and not enough on the root causes. The fishbone diagram enables you to identify all the contributors of a problem, helping you and your teammates to find solutions much quicker.

A fishbone Diagram was created by Japanese quality control expert Kaoru Ishikawa to identify the potential causes of a certain issue or event within organizations. It is an effective visual way to identify direct and indirect causes of problems and enables you to categorize the causes into clear solutions and brainstorm with your teammates, as it is essential to include other perspectives.

These caqtegories are automatically named people, method, machine, leadership, and materials, but these can be changed according to your needs or type of issue. Our template allows you to list 10 different main causes in each of the 6 categories.
