Sketch Ishikawa's Fishbone Diagram
Main problem in a square on the right hand right, a horizontal line on the left hand side. Vertical lines off the horizontal line stating the potential causes of the main problem. Horizontal lines from the causes, reasons why those problems may occur

Sketch a Decision Tree
Key = decision node, chance node, probability, rejected option. Decision node on the left side (square), however many lines coming off it to create chance nodes (circle), lines coming of that with probability (0.2) & financial success of each option
