What is Organization Chart?

An organization chart (also called organizational chart, or org chart) is a graphical depiction of the roles and structure within an organization. It is a diagram that shows the structure of an organization and the relationships and relative ranks of its parts and positions/jobs. 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. By looking at the org chart, people can gain a quick understanding of how the organization is designed, its number of levels and where each employee fits into the organization.
