               This version of the Ishikawa Diagram loses a bit of its ‘fish’ structure in exchange for the creation of sub-causes, an essential piece for many detail-oriented individuals. Similarly, to the Fishbone Diagram v1, all one has to do is to fill out the ‘Description’, ‘Cause’, ‘Issue or Outcome’ and include the ‘Sub-causes’.

Print

               To print either of the Fishbone Diagrams, go to the relevant worksheet, then press CTRL+P or go to File->Print.
