Organizational Chart

The HTML to link to this page
 

An organizational chart is a diagram that represents and defines the structure of an organization in terms of rank. The organizational chart generally plots the relationships between staff, showing directors, managers and general workers. An organizational chart is a graphic representation that only shows formal relationships, lines of authority and responsibility. What an organizational chart does not reveal is social relationships or the type of managerial style an organization has adopted. An organizational chart is also referred to as an org chart. In addition to businesses, government agencies and school districts also utilize the organizational chart concept. When looking at large conglomerates, the organizational chart can become confusing and highly complicated. Therefore, a main organizational chart is often broken down into smaller, more functional charts. The organizational chart is usually one of three types: hierarchical, matrix or flat. Most business plans contain an organizational chart to describe the make-up of an organization.
