What’s a Driver Diagram?
A driver diagram is a visual representation of a system of improvement. It was originally used in the healthcare industry to facilitate strategic planning and is now a common tool of well-known leaders of improvement science methods such as the Carnegie Foundation.
In a nutshell, driver diagrams are graphic organizers that can facilitate goal setting conversations in teams and can help individuals at various levels of an organization better understand how their work is aligned to the greater aim.
