How to make an affinity diagram
Identify the purpose or objective
Determine the focus topic and use that to title your affinity diagram.
Determine group categories
Create categories below the title. These categories will be used to arrange multiple solutions or factors into logical groups.
Add contributing factors within each category group
Jot down all major information, ideas, or issues that relate to your objective and add them to your affinity diagram as closely within a related group as possible.
Organize your factors within their groups
As you add your contributing factors, go back and organize them as needed so each factor is placed within its most appropriate category. There will likely be more than one factor within each category.
Analyze and share
Once your factors are organized, share your diagram with others that may want to contribute their input. Analyze the diagram with your team to understand key issues and prioritize.
