Tree Diagram

The tree diagram is a tool used to analyze and visualize the structure of a problem, very similar to the cause and effect diagram. Each branch of the tree is supported by limbs, which explode and explain the branch in greater detail. This Diagram can be constructed in Word 2007 by using: Insert » Diagram » Hierarchy, using “Smart Art Tools.”
