    1. I use Vensim for CLDs. It’s not as visually refined as your link, but it’s fairly fast and does have + and – tags for arrows, delay indicators, etc. There are actually two ways to do it – you can build a model without defining any equations, or use the comment fields (with “no cause” and “arrow junction” checked) if you want to have some redundancy in naming (i.e. use a name twice on the same screen without displaying as a shadow variable).

      You could prototype something in Vensim, then export to ppt or whatever to edit the vector graphics.

      I’ve looked at a lot of mindmapping and process diagramming tools and not found a good alternative. If you run across anything I’d be interested to hear about it here.
