Venn Diagram Template

What is the Venn Diagram template?

Use a graphical diagram to represent similarities and differences between groups, concepts, or datasets. The areas where the circles overlap represent aspects that belong to the same group. The areas where the circles don’t connect show the differences.


Start the brainstorming session by placing the information on sticky notes and then in appropriate circles. Each circle symbolizes one dataset or concept, depending on what you’re working on. Have each circle in a different color, so you can quickly recognize groups or concepts. Once you break down complex ideas or solve intricate problems, you can discuss the results with your team.


What are the benefits of the Venn Diagram template?

Thanks to the Venn Diagram template, you can:

  • Make better decisions by studying probabilities or predicting events.
  • Present any pieces of information in a clear form, enabling everyone to see and understand similarities and differences at a glance.
  • Compare your product against other competing companies, apps, or services.
  • Explain any project to interested stakeholders using a visual form.
  • Improve team communication by explaining complex concepts in an easy way.


How to use the Venn Diagram template in a few steps?

  1. Select the template from the library to work with it on a new whiteboard or add it to an existing one.
  2. Consider how many datasets you would like to represent on the diagram and add the appropriate number of circles. Change their color to distinguish them from the rest. Add their names in text blocks to know what they refer to.
  3. Adjust the positions of circles depending on how many of them will be included in your diagram. Ensure some of their parts overlap to mark the similarities in appropriate places. You can omit this step if you use the 3-circle Venn Diagram.
  4. Note the similarities between groups on sticky notes and put them in sections where the circles overlap.
  5. Identify the differences between groups on sticky notes and put them in sections where they don’t share their traits.
  6. Share the results with your team and discuss them when you’re ready.
