Cycle Diagrams and Flowcharts

Any concept can be illustrated in different ways, using multiple types of charts. In oder to demonstrate a number of simple approaches applicable to many other subjects, we give you the following examples on the (randomly selected) topic of "Problem solving".

While problem solving process is cyclic, it is logical to represent it as a Cycle Diagram. A simple diagram of this type can be drawn by using Grapholite in a minute:
Cycle Diagram – Problem Solving in 4 Steps
Cycle Diagram – The 5 Steps of Problem Solving
Of course we are free to use another forms of presentation, we may show the developing process as a cycle, or as a "growing" arrow, etc:
Six Staged Hexagon Cycle Diagram
Yet Another Way to Show a Sequence of Steps
If you need to make your diagram more informative, you can add details. You have to get creative to present it the best way within cyclic diagram. Another practical approach is to create a Flowchart. "Practical" means pragmatical, detailed, formal and quickly implemented, as the example below:

Rational Planning Model Flowchart

Grapholite is a specialized tool to draw Flowcharts quickly. It's a practical and inexpensive solution. Also, as you can see, it is able to create a simple infographic. Ideas on this area we collect in our blog in articles labeled as examples.

Update: We have created a video demonstrating the complete process of drawing a simple flowchart. The flowchart in the example (partially) reflects one of the cycle diagrams taken from here.
