Organization Chart

… a core concept in Governance and Institutions and Atlas100

Concept description defines organization chart as a diagram that illustrates the structure of an organization.

It goes on to say that:

“An organization chart (sometimes called an organizational chart, an org chart, or an organogram) is a diagram that illustrates the structure of an organization, the relationships and relative ranks of its business units/divisions, and the positions or roles assigned to each unit/division.

“Examples of such roles include managers of various departments, subordinates within these departments, directors, and chief executive officers. When an organization chart grows too large, it can be split into smaller charts that show only individual departments within the organization.”
