The diagramming tools introduced in this chapter illustrate common techniques business professionals encounter when seeking a pictorial representation of business processes and data relationships. Each technique has its own purpose, strengths, and weaknesses, which is why you have been shown a variety of them. After all, an architect would not use the same representation technique for house plans as a programmer would for computer code! The chapters that follow include many examples of each technique, to help you understand how to read them, when to use them, and how to create them yourself. If ever there was a good example of “practice makes perfect,” this is one. The more you use the techniques, the better prepared you will be to work with them later in your professional career.
