What is a T-Chart

T-Charts are a useful visual tool for organizing and comparing two different ideas or concepts. They are particularly effective for highlighting differences and similarities, weighing pros and cons, distinguishing facts from opinions, comparing strengths and weaknesses, and analyzing big-picture views versus specific details. T-Charts can be a valuable aid for problem-solving and decision-making processes.

When to use a T-Chart

T-Charts are a versatile tool that can be used to facilitate discussions around differences and similarities between two ideas. This can be helpful in making joint decisions with your team or clients. T-Charts can be customized to fit different themes or problem-solving scenarios, including:

  • Utilizing T-Charts to compare advantages and disadvantages
  • Examining personality characteristics
  • Defining cause and effect relationships
  • Comparing past and present states
  • Creating a glossary to monitor terminology and definitions
  • Outlining potential solutions and their outcomes

By using T-Charts, your team can capture new insights, identify patterns, and share knowledge. T-Charts can also complement statistical data and graphs, helping to present a cohesive narrative.

Create your own T-Chart

Creating your own T-Charts is a simple process that can be done on FigJam. Start by selecting the T-Chart Template and following these steps:

  1. Determine the purpose of your T-Chart.

    Will you be comparing and contrasting design or content-related ideas to make a decision? Or outlining situations to plan for important events? It's important to have a clear objective in mind before creating your chart.

  2. Invite your team or clients to collaborate on the chart.

    FigJam allows up to 200 people to work together on the same board, making it easy to get feedback and input from others to refine your ideas.

  3. Use visuals to enhance your text and reach a final decision.

    Adding emojis or photos can add an emotional dimension or provide context for your team. You can also use imagery as a tool to vote for a preferred option or to illustrate real-life references and bring the chart to life.
