About Word's Business Diagrams Capabilities

In addition to organization charts, Word 10 can instantly build five more key types of business charts:

  • Cycle diagrams, which are commonly used to explain continuous processes. Figure 25.6 shows a cycle diagram for a software development project. This project starts with planning, but after software has eventually been delivered, it cycles back into planning for new enhancements.

  • Radial diagrams, which (as in Figure 25.7) are commonly used to describe processes that all center on, or radiate from, a single core element.

  • Pyramid diagrams, which are commonly used to explain how elements of a project or process build on each other. Figure 25.8 shows a pyramid diagram showing how computers are organized conceptually.

  • Venn diagrams, which are commonly used to explain aspects or characteristics of a system that are different and point out aspects or characteristics that overlap. Figure 25.9 shows a simple Venn diagram.
