Brief Description (including a definition if possible)
The fishbone diagram (also known as the Ishikawa diagram after its inventor and the cause-and-effect diagram) is a useful tool for identifying many possible causes for an effect, either positive or negative. It helps to sort these ideas easily into useful categories.
It is a good method to prevent individuals from jumping to quick and overly simplistic reasons for a situation, and to encourage a more thorough exploration of the deeper issues.
