An organisational chart is a diagram most commonly with a top-down structure, which adapts a relationship hierarchy to help display the structure of a business or a project. An organisational diagram can be large or small, depending on how many interrelated relationships there are connected to the original box. They can broadly depict a large scale operation, or focus on smaller specific groups or departments.
Organisational charts are versatile as they display information in an organised format and therefore can be used in many sectors such as in business, for planning, and management. The diagram visually represents the relationship between one group to another, and when drawn out can display a whole organisation. The diagram can help to convey a businesses internal structure, and is a strong visual tool on a PowerPoint presentation because of its graphical representation of a large scale organisation.
The different variations of an organisational chart differ in how they display interrelated relationships.
Organisational charts can also be structured from left to right, or from right to left instead of the most commonly top-down hierarchy. The diagram’s key point is the relationships between two groups and so it is versatile in which direction this relationship is displayed.
