Decision trees are used to analyze information and to model the decision-making process. They help you identify the best strategy based on the outcomes.
If you think of decision trees as a boring tabular structure that look absolutely dry and yawn-worthy, try 24Point0’s tree visuals. You can easily represent your decision tree so that your audience sits up and takes notice – both of what you have to say and show.
Decision trees can be as simple or complex as you want them to be, so it’s really about what you want to depict, and to what extent. For example, if you are a training manager and need to decide on a learning strategy for your organization, you, along with the management would need to take decisions on what kind of learning solutions the organization should offer. In this case, ‘Learning strategy’ becomes your decision challenge.
To represent this as a visual in PowerPoint, download the Tree Visuals product from 24Point0.
By adding information regarding learning strategy decisions to the Tree Visuals Autumn slide, you have a ready visually-appealing decision tree slide in minutes.
Like all of 24Point0’s business diagrams and graphics for PowerPoint presentations, the planning diagrams can be edited for fonts, colors and scale. Each ‘leaf’ can be re-sized and edited, and if necessary deleted, allowing you to represent only the necessary information.
In the tree visual shown above, we have used an Arial 12 pt. on the text boxes, and deleted some of the text boxes that were extraneous. The editing you do would largely depend on your scenario, and how complex it is.
You can represent any numbers and figures you have on your decision tree as well. Not just that, this particular deck has nine slides and the same product can be used for varying tree – like structures such as family trees and cause-effect situations, besides decision trees. For example, you could add pictures of family; add more leaves / text boxes for business analogies etc.
The bottom line is that your decision analysis and representations need not be dry and boring. They can instead be more visually appealing, while allowing you to represent both simple and complex decisions on PowerPoint!
