iDEAS organises all of the information required to complete this task in a graphical way. Issues, solutions, arguments and other items are displayed in one or more diagrams. Creating new items is easy and the whole process can be managed by almost anyone with a little computer experience. You will soon see the truth of the saying 'A picture says a thousand words'. The diagrams you create with iDEAS can be printed or exported to your PowerPoint presentations or Word documents - persuade yourself of the right course of action and then persuade others!
