How much time should I allot for the brainstorming portion of a Fishbone Diagram?
I recommend blocking out an hour for the group to meet, brainstorm categories, populate the Fishbone, conduct Multi-Voting and then create an action plan to collect data or observe the process. That should give you a enough time.
