Circular Arrows Diagrams

Circular Arrows Diagrams (Segmented Cycle Diagrams) are an intuitive way to visualize cyclical, repeatable processes in which one action leads to another. They are the perfect way to represent sequence of steps, tasks, or events as a circular flow, to illustrate and analyze conceptual theories, product lifecycles, physical processes and corporate standards.

The steps of the process are shown as arced sections of a ring; each segment ends with an arrow indicating direction of the process flow and links up from the last step to the first. Often the Circular Arrows Diagrams use a color scheme for additional information; this can be used to highlight the importance and priority of a stage.

Circular Arrows Diagrams are great when used to view a processing cycle in management, marketing analysis, business, information technologies, advertising, mass media, PR, and sales.

Circular Arrows Diagrams solution extends ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with extensive drawing tools, predesigned samples, Circular flow diagram template for quick start, and a library of ready circular arrow vector stencils for drawing Circular Arrow Diagrams, Segmented Cycle Diagrams, and Circular Flow Diagrams. The elements in this solution help managers, analysts, business advisers, marketing experts, scientists, lecturers, and other knowledge workers in their daily work.


There is 1 library containing 20 vector objects in the Circular Arrows Diagrams solution.

Examples

There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application by using the Circular Arrows Diagrams solution. Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.

All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Circular Arrows Diagrams solution is available to all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software.

Example 1: Circular Arrows Diagram — BPM Life Cycle

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Circular Arrows Diagrams Library from the Circular Arrows Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This circular arrows diagram represents the stages of a business development cycle. One last touch to add more visuality and attractivity for your diagram, and make it easier for remembering - you can highlight each stage with its own bright color.

Example 2: Circular Arrows Diagram — Advanced Persistent Threat Lifecycle

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Circular Arrows Diagrams Library from the Circular Arrows Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 15 minutes creating this sample.

This sample shows a circular arrows diagram that describes Advanced Persistent Threat (APT). You can see how the gradation of color works, the color intensity is reduced from the stage to stage, emphasizing the importance and priority of the most intensely colored stages.

Example 3: Circular Arrows Diagram — Conservation Measures Partnership CMP Cycle

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Circular Arrows Diagrams Library from the Circular Arrows Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

This sample demonstrates the circular arrows diagram of the Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) lifecycle. Each stage has a detailed description. It is a complex detailed diagram, but was easily created ConceptDraw DIAGRAM. By using the predesigned objects contained in the library one can draw a diagram similar to this in several minutes.

How to Draw a Circular Arrows Diagram

Circular Arrows Diagrams

The use of circular arrows as a simple diagram style is utilized by knowledge workers to visually represent a circular, repeatable process or lifecycle. Steps in the process are shown as a segment of a ring, an arced section ending in an arrow that indicates the direction of process flow. In this way, the process forms a continuous loop; the last step of the process leading back to the first.

Circular arrows diagrams are used in many different business and educational settings, and can go under a number of different names depending on user preference. Here are a few alternate synonyms that may be used:

  • Arrows cycle diagram
  • Circle arrows diagram
  • Circular chevron diagram
  • Circular flow diagram
  • Circular multi-arrows diagram
  • Circular process diagram
  • Cycle diagram

  • Segmented cycle diagram

Each one essentially describes the same style. Through this basic premise, a large variety of physical processes and conceptual theories can be explored, presented and analyzed. In a business environment, circular arrows diagrams are used to distil company strategies into easily digestible and repeatable slogans, that can form the basis of internal company policy. Their use is also widespread in marketing and sales — here the cycle can include point of sales and customer interactions, to give some feedback on processes that are external to the business. Product lifecycles, corporate standards, or a design process; all can be shown using circular arrows.

A basic circular arrows diagram, made using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM, with the central concept stated

With a neat, succinct form that can break any topic down into inter-related points, circular arrows diagrams are an ideal method for sharing relatively complex ideas with a large audience, pointing to the central concept in a way that's easy for the viewer to follow — the idea of cyclic processes is an intuitive one, with each point leading directly to the next, and all in support of base subject. Due to this, it is common to find circular arrows diagrams in advertising, news media, infographics, and as an educational tool — often as a visual reference to a central theme, accompanied by supporting text or illustrations.

This diagram uses a color scheme for additional information — shades of green denote process start/end, while colored arcs reference the central text

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM can now be extended with the tools needed for those wishing to use this diagramming technique. The Circular Arrows Diagrams solution supplies knowledge workers with a full package of templates, vector graphic stencils, and help and learning materials to give users of any experience a helping hand with their diagramming.

The vector graphics within the solution library are professionally designed, especially for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM, with its powerful features and functionality that allow for full control and a variety of visual styles when creating your diagram. The solution is adaptable — segments can be added and taken away from the initial design with just a few clicks of a button, and a full range of color options let you give your diagram the aesthetic you need.

Circular arrows diagrams can be stand alone concepts, viewed directly as they were made through PRO For those with wider needs for their diagram, ConceptDraw is on hand to help — a full range of exporting options and presentation facilities are offered, to ensure your diagram is seen by those who need to see it. As an integrated part of the ConceptDraw Office suite, diagrams made in PRO can be shared with other ConceptDraw products to enhance project material and facillitate worker collaboration.

The Circular Arrows Diagram for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is another invaluable tool for business people, knowledge workers and educators.
