Other quality planning tools are often used to help better define the situation and help plan effective quality management activities. These include, but are not limited to:
• Brainstorming (defined in Section 10.1.2.4).
• Affinity diagrams, used to visually identify logical groupings based on natural relationships.
• Force field analysis, which are diagrams of the forces for and against change.
• Nominal group techniques, to allow ideas to be brainstormed in small groups; and then reviewed by a larger group.
• Matrix diagrams, which allow organization of two, three, or four groups of information relationships between factors, causes, and objectives. Data in a matrix is organized in rows and columns with intersecting cells that can be filled with information that describes the demonstrated relationship between the items located in the row and column.
• Prioritization matrices, which provide a way of ranking diverse set of problems and/or issues (usually generated through brainstorming) by their importance.
