Guide and Best Practices

The lotus diagram helps breakdown broad topics into smaller components for easy analysis and prioritization. It’s a tool commonly used in brainstorming, studying, and creative thinking.

How to use the lotus diagram

  • Choose your medium to draw the lotus diagram. Here you can use an online collaboration tool like Creately. It provides you an online canvas with multiple intuitive drawing features.
  • Once you have selected the topic to be studied, write it in the center of a 3x3 grid you’ve drawn on the canvas. Use the Creately table shape to easily create the grid.
  • Brainstorm around the main topic to identify 8 subtopics to place on the blank squares around the center.
  • Share your Creately document with others to add them as collaborators. Any changes they make will be visible to you instantly.
  • Draw 8 more 3x3 grids surrounding the one in the center. Assign each one of these the subtopics you identified earlier.
  • Ideas and information related to these subtopics can be placed on the empty spaces around them.
  • Using the Creately preset color themes, you can highlight each section of the lotus diagrams you have created.
  • You can add labels or a numbering system to prioritize each idea for actions as well.
  • Want to share or publish your lotus diagram? Download it as a JPEG, PNG, or SVG to add to presentations or documents.
