What is Organization Chart?

An organization chart (also known as org chart, or organizational chart) is a graphic representation of a unit's formal structure that provides a clear picture of the area of responsibility and reporting relationships within the unit. It can be used to define the roles and responsibilities of positions within a unit; visualize the structure of the workforce; and establish a structure of authority, communication channels, and specific operational functions and tasks. An org chart is used in many human resource related processes to make decisions including, but not limited to, recruitment, classification, organizational development activities such as restructuring, and training. It is often used to establish decision-making processes and specific operational functions.
