The structure of the Fishbone Diagram Template consists of the following major elements:

  2. The Spine: The spine is the connecter between causes categories.
  3. The Branches: Each branch represents a set of causes, representing a category. All causes in a branch should be related.
  4. The Cause: Each root cause factor identified should be placed in the diagram as a leaf of a branch.

The exercise of populating the diagrams helps the users to brainstorm the different causes and their probability of incidence in the effect.
