What is Organization Chart?

The organization chart is a diagram showing graphically the relation of one official to another, or others, of a company. It is also used to show the relation of one department to another, or others, or of one function of an organization to another, or others. This chart is valuable in that it enables one to visualize a complete organization, by means of the picture it presents. An organization chart typically illustrates relations between people within an organization. Such relations might include managers to sub-workers, directors to managing directors, chief executive officer to various departments, and so forth. When an organization chart grows too large it can be split into smaller charts for separate departments within the organization.

Types of Organization Chart

There is no standard form of organization and there are wide variety of organization that fit for different situations.

Functional - One of the most common types of organizational structures, the functional structure departmentalizes an organization based on common job functions.

Organizational - You can think of a divisional organizational structure as a structure that's comprised of multiple, smaller functional structures (i.e. each division within a divisional structure can have its own marketing team, its own sales team, etc.).

Matrix - A matrix organizational structure doesn't follow the traditional, hierarchal model. Instead, all employees (represented by the green boxes) have dual reporting relationships.
