    What is a Decision Tree?

    What is a Decision Tree?

    A decision tree is a method of visualizing the possible outcomes and impact of a strategic decision. They help determine the probable results of a decision and calculate the costs, risks and benefits of a stream of decisions.

    How to Make a Decision Tree Together with Your Team?

    Decision trees can be used as a visual tool that teams can collaborate around to identify and analyze different options and their potential outcomes. With decision trees teams can make informed decisions, identify potential issues, and weight pros and cons of different options.

    1. Define the problem and gather data

    Define the problem and the objectives. Gather team members and stakeholders to discuss the issue. Collect the data relevant to the problem from all participants. Share ideas and ensure everyone is on the same page regarding what the decision tree is trying to achieve.

    Make use of Creately integrations such as Microsoft Teams to hold dynamic meetings. Use the whiteboard and sticky notes to jot down ideas and elaborate on the problem.

    1. Start creating the decision tree

    Drag and drop a rectangle onto the canvas to type the root node or the main problem. You can also opt to use a readily available template.

    1. Brainstorm decision points

    Brainstorm the decision points of the tree with your teammates. Consider all ideas and perspectives and identify potential blind spots.

    1. Assign branches

    Assign branches for each decision point. Use circles to denote nodes that contain possible outcomes. Each node may be connected to multiple circles depending on the number of outcomes.

    As the decision tree branches out, use lines to indicate each decision’s impact (or cost) and its possible outcomes. Creately features intelligent formatting capabilities that allow you to connect shapes easily.

    1. Assign probability or likelihood

    Assign the probability or likelihood of each branch being chosen. Use dot voting to gather the input of each team member. Select a shape and access the notes panel on the right to store additional information on possible outcomes. All questions or points on the decision tree should be connected to a chance event. Use triangles at the end of change events to indicate an outcome.

    1. Share and fine-tune

    Once the decision tree is complete, calculate the cost of each outcome and determine the final value. Export the decision tree in JPEG, SVG, PNG, or PDF formats or share it with colleagues for real-time feedback collection.

    FAQs About Decision Tree in Creately

    What is the most important property of a decision tree?
    One of the most important properties of a decision tree is its ability to make clear and interpretable predictions. Decision trees are a type of supervised learning algorithm that can be used for both classification and regression tasks. They work by recursively partitioning the data into subsets based on the values of the input features, and at each step, they choose the feature that provides the most information about the target variable. The final result is a tree-like model where each internal node represents a feature, each branch represents a decision based on the value of the feature, and each leaf node represents a prediction.
    Who uses decision trees?
    As the decision tree structure is easy to understand, it is often used by businesses (especially in credit risk assessments), data scientists, researchers, engineers, medical professionals, educators and government agencies to name a few.
    What are the key components of a decision tree?

    There are three main parts.

    • Decision node (choice)
    • Chance node (probability)
    • End node (outcomes)
