Why are Decision Trees Important?

A decision tree is a visual tool to help you make better decisions. It consists of a flow-chart-like structure where each ‘branch’ represents the actions that can be taken at a given point in time and the ‘leaves’ are the outcomes of those decisions.

How to Use a Decision Tree Template to Clarify Thinking?

How do you think about complex problems and put yourself in the best position to make efficient decisions? The decision tree template, also known as a decision diagram, is a great way to predict outcomes and create a structured framework to evaluate options and make informed decisions. It links causes and effects to show the options and outcomes of your decision-making process.

  1. Begin by defining your question or problem area

Use Creately decision tree templates to bring in multiple problem areas. You can list down various problem statements on sticky notes, group them and arrange them in meaningful ways. You can invite multiple stakeholders and vote on the most relevant decision that needs to be analyzed first.

  1. Start with a central node of your decision tree and create logic branches

List out the options for every available decision. You can do this by adding simple lines that branch out that represent the possible outcomes. Extending these outcomes results in a tree-like structure that helps you easily evaluate the outcomes of each decision and better weigh your options.

  1. Add context to every decision point on your decision tree

You can attach reference notes, external data, and much more to every node. This helps you make more accurate assumptions and create more predictable outcomes

  1. Bring in other decision-making frameworks

Extend the output of your decision tree to design a more complete course of action. Assess the impact of a decision using RICE frameworks, prioritize tasks using priority grids and create action plans all on the same canvas.

  1. Share with stakeholders for more feedback

Securely invite your management/clients/agency or consultants to give feedback for your decision. Detailed discussion threads keep the conversation going async to ensure you arrive at the best decision together.

  1. Publish and maintain the decision tree as a living reference

Use our advanced folder structure to create wiki and intranets. Make your decision tree easily accessible to the whole organization in order to clarify thinking and improve strategic thinking.

Why Use a Decision Tree Template?
