To know about fishbone diagram, please watch following video:

Fishbone Diagram is a tool which can be used in the Generate Insight to understand the root cause of the problem. Generate Insight support in identifying about what can be improved in next iterations and if you are solving the root problem then your improvements will work well.

Triple Nickels is a data gathering exercise. The team can be divided into five groups for five minutes to build five ideas. The groups thinks about at least five issues that occurred during the iteration. They record them in the sticky notes and pass it the other member in the group, and it gives an idea about what others are thinking.

This process is repeated five times so that everyone controbute in the ideas and also got an opportunity to think about from others perspective.

Thus the difference in Fishbone Diagram and Triple Nickels is:

Fishbone is used in Generate Insight and Triple Nickels is used in Gather Data.
