Guide and Best Practices

When you are faced with several courses of action, you can use decision trees to select the best option by analyzing the outcomes to identify which can benefit you the most.

How to Create a Decision Tree

  • Identify the decision you want to make or the issue that you want to find a solution for. This should become the main heading of the decision tree.
  • Choose from a Creately decision tree template or start drawing one from scratch using the Creately editor.
  • Brainstorm the different options you can have when solving the problem, or making the decision. Write these down on the branches of the decision tree you are making.
  • Further analyze these variables to identify the risks and rewards associated with each alternative. You can use a risk-reward analysis to do this as well.
  • Use different colors to highlight the different decision paths. This will make it easier for anyone to quickly read and understand the decision tree.
  • Based on the risks and rewards associated with each alternative, prioritize them. Which alternative option has the least risks and the most rewards?
  • Invite others on your team to collaborate on the diagram with a secure diagram share link so anyone can view and analyze it before helping you come to a conclusion.
  • As you like, export your decision tree diagram in PDF, PNG or SVG image formats for publishing and embedding.
