Venn Diagrams are illustrations used in the branch of mathematics known as set theory. They show the mathematical or logical relationship between different groups of things (sets).
A Venn Diagram was introduced by the British philosopher and mathematician John Venn
(1834-1923) in 1881 and visually shows all the possible logical relations between the sets. This diagram can be interpreted as the relationships of sets which may have some (but not all) elements in common.
Example 1. Venn Diagram - Relationship Marketing
The combined area of sets in a Venn Diagram is called the union of sets. Sometimes there is a rectangle around the Venn diagram to show the space of all possible elements. This rectangle represents so-called Universal set. A Venn Diagram is usually used to divide up two or more objects to highlight similarities and differences.
Venn Diagrams visualize all the possible logical relations between sets. They are used to illustrate simple set relationships in logic, statistics, mathematics, sociology, philosophy, marketing, etc. Venn Diagrams are also commonly used to visually summarize the status and future viability of a project.
Example 3. Venn Diagram - Sustainable Development
There are some similar diagram types, based on Venn Diagram:
- Euler diagrams similar to Venn Diagrams, but they may not describe all the possible relations.
- Johnston diagrams, which are used to illustrate statements in propositional logic, such as "Neither A nor B is true", and are a visual way of illustrating truth tables.
- Karnaugh maps or Veitch diagram are another way of visually representing Boolean expressions.
- Peirce diagrams, devised by Charles Peirce, are extensions to Venn diagrams which include information on existential statements, disjunctive information, probabilities, and relations.
Example 3. Venn Diagram - Knowledge
This simple example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Business Diagrams Solution. It shows the use of Venn Diagram to compare two people groups. One circle represents all the information people know about the stock market in Britain, the other circle represents all the information they know about stock market in Germany. Any features the two areas share can be written in the intersection of the circles. The result shows at a glance what the two markets have in common and what features are different.
Use Business Diagrams solution to quick and easy design your own Venn Diagram of any complexity.
The Venn Diagrams designed with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM are vector graphic documents and are available for reviewing, modifying, converting to a variety of formats (image, HTML, PDF file, MS PowerPoint Presentation, Adobe Flash or MS Visio), printing and send via e-mail in one moment.

Process Flow Chart is a visual diagram which shows the processes and relationships between the major components in a system, and uses for this the special process flow chart symbols: special shapes to represent different types of actions and process steps, lines and arrows to represent relationships and sequence of steps. It often named process flow diagram, it use colored flowchart symbols.
It is incredibly convenient to use the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Flowcharts Solution from the "Diagrams" Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park for designing professional looking Process Flow Charts.

Stakeholder analysis in conflict resolution, project management, and business administration, is the process of identifying the individuals or groups that are likely to affect or be affected by a proposed action, and sorting them according to their impact on the action and the impact the action will have on them.

If you need to describe some process, diagramming is a perfect tool for almost any imaginable purpose. The set of the most commonly used flow charts symbols is quite wide and includes symbols for operations, processes, data inputs and outputs. You can see the full list of all the symbols used for flowcharting in Flowcharts solution from Diagrams area in ConceptDraw Solution Park.
A flow chart is often used for visual representation of a sequential process flow. The flowchart approach to any process is to divide it into some sequential actions. What makes a flow chart so popular and clear to make out is the set of standard flowchart symbols that has the same reading independently from processes described with their applying. The current drawing represents the vector library containing the pack of standard flowchart symbols. This library is supplied with ConceptDraw Flowcharts solution.

Acquaintance with flowcharting starts from getting into basic terms. First of all, flowchart definition is quite clear – a flowchart is a graphical representation of a process or an algorithm made of special symbols. Secondly, flowcharting is an irreplaceable tool for IT specialists, project managers, and anyone who wants a clear understanding of any imaginable process.

The Stakeholder Onion Diagram is a popular and widely used way to view the relationships of stakeholders to a project goal. The Onion Diagram focuses on the project goal, most of other diagram styles focus on the project, stakeholders, and timeline. This difference favorably distinguishes and separates the Onion Diagram from other types of diagrams.
