What Is a Spider Diagram?

Spider diagrams are visual tools that help you generate and organize ideas in a logical way. This collaborative brainstorming technique allows teams to generate ideas quickly around a central concept and add links and related ideas to create a complete overview that’s easy to understand.

How to Make a Spider Diagram?

  • First, select the right platform to conduct a collaborative brainstorming session on. Creately’s infinite canvas and real-time collaboration features are great for teams to exchange ideas and spark innovation.
  • Create your spider diagram by listing your main topic in the center of your visual in a circle.
  • Create sub-topics around your main idea and use lines or arrows to connect them to the main topic.
  • Now create more detailed sub-ideas around your subtopics - keep going until you have explored a topic in detail.
  • Use color codes to visually group ideas and sub-ideas to create an easy reference with logical links.
