One of the easiest diagrams to create is the Cone Diagram. In fact, it’s just the piecing together of 2 shapes: a triangle (for the body) and a circle (for the opening). Just see below.
To enhance the look of the circular opening, I like to change the background color fill of the circle using a linear gradient.
Similar to the PowerPoint funnel diagram, a cone diagram is a great tool to illustrate a downselection or filtering down process. Likewise, you can also easily build upon the cone diagram to show added layers and direction of flow. See the examples below.
You can download all the cone diagrams shown in this PowerPoint tutorial here (http://learnppt.com/downloads/cone_diagrams/). Enjoy.
You can also download a free PowerPoint plugin called Flevy Tools that creates commonly used consulting diagrams: http://flevy.com/powerpoint-plugin. Flevy Tools allows you to dynamically generate Gantt Charts, Harvey Ball diagrams, approach diagrams, and other diagrams. For the time being, it’s a completely free download.

Give your presentations the look and feel of a final product made by McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Booz Allen, Deloitte, or any of the top consulting firms.
