This methodic connects Brainstorming with a Mind Mapping, it lets to identify all possible causes of a problem, define bottlenecks and represent all this on the Ishikawa (Fishbone) diagram which looks like the fish skeleton.

Causes can be derived from brainstorming sessions, further they are often categorized and can show relationships among various factors. Causes are usually grouped into major categories to identify the sources of variation.
