The Affinity Diagram is a powerful tool to use during projects with team members. It is an analytical tool that teams can use to organize ideas into subgroups with a common theme or relationship. The affinity diagram can help you see correlation in large amounts of data/information.
It was created by Jiro Kawakita. There are many different methods that practitioners use to develop or build the affinity diagram. In 2015 Lean Strategies International LLC created the ©CURE methodology, which is a simple four step methodology that teams can use to group large amounts of data, establish innovative ideas and find solutions to issues while getting the most out of opportunities. The four steps for our upcoming course on the ©CURE methodology are shown below.
