Fishbone Problem Solving
The knowledge and ability to apply various strategies for dealing with problems and difficult situations is very useful in many areas. The Fishbone strategy is one of the most progressive. Invented by professor Kaoru Ishikawa it is a model of formulation and solving problems. This graphical technique helps to identify possible causes of problems, to set the goals, and also show internal connections between the different parts of problem. After reviewing all causes and facts, you can easily find right solution.

You can use many tools to create a representation of a system behavior or a scheme of objects relationships. Some of them are quite abstract and useless, and some, like UML tools help clarifying both the structure and the behavior of a system. There are various types of uml diagrams and tons of examples explaining the difference between them.
UML 2.2 specification has many kinds of diagrams. They are divided into two groups( structure and behavior diagrams). This class diagram shows the hierarchical structure of UML 2.2 specification. Class diagram - the most suitable tool for this task because it is designed to describe basic structure of a system. This diagram can be use as a visual aid for learning UML.

A flowchart is a powerful tool for examining processes. It helps improving processes a lot, as it becomes much easier to communicate between involved people, to identify potential problems and to optimize workflow. There are flowcharts of different shapes, sizes and types of flowchart vary from quite basic process flowcharts to complex program flowcharts. Nevertheless, all these diagrams use the same set of special symbols like arrows to connect blocks, parallelogram to show data receiving or rectangles for showing process steps.
Basic flowcharts are used to represent a simple process algorithm. A basic flowchart notation consists of rectangles (business processes), arrows (the flow of information, documents, etc.). The same notation is used in items such as the "decision", which allow you to do the branching. To indicate the start of the entire business process and its termination can be used the "Terminator" element. The advantages of Basic Flowchart are simplicity and clarity. With it you can quickly describe the business process steps. Creating of Basic Flowchart does not require any special knowledge, as easily understand by employees with different levels of education and IQ.

Venn Diagrams visualize all possible logical relations between several sets and are widely used in mathematics, logic, statistics, marketing, sociology, etc.
This Venn Diagram shows the relative complement of the set A with respect to the set B. It is the set of the elements in B, but not in A. In other words it is the set-theoretic difference B-A.
