Making fishbone diagrams in Microsoft PowerPoint is not very convenient. Need a fishbone diagram for your PPT presentation? Edraw Max offers you not only professional pre-made templates but also numerous built-in symbols to create custom fishbone diagrams.

What is Fishbone Diagram?

Fishbone diagram is actually a metaphorical saying of cause-and-effect diagram. A fishbone diagram is a visualized tool for categorizing the potential causes of a problem to identify the root causes, and helps employees avoid solutions that merely address the symptoms of a much larger problem. No matter in meetings, group discussions or presentations, a fishbone diagram gives you a leg up in getting organized and better prepared to analyze a problem clearly.

How to Create Fishbone Diagrams for PPT

1. On the File menu, click New, click Business Diagram, and double click Fishbone template. A new drawing page will open.
2. Go to the library pane on the left of the canvas. From the library of Cause and Effect Diagram, drag fishbone shapes onto the canvas.
3. When you connect shapes, there are auto connection points which will glue the shapes together.

  • To label a category, use the Text tool and then type your words.
  • To delete a category, select the shape and then press the Delete key

4. To represent major causes contributing to the categories, drag Primary cause shapes onto the drawing page and snap the arrowheads to category lines.
