Organizing process is the process of creating the organizational structure of an enterprise. The organizing process consists of several stages. First, you need to divide the organization into departments, respectively to strategies, and then establish relationships of authority. After that, managing director delegates his rights and authorities. Delegacy is the transfer of the tasks and powers of the person who assumes responsibility for their implementation. If the leader does not delegate tasks, then he should do them. Responsibility is a commitment to carry out existing tasks and be accountable for their satisfactory result, which can’t be delegated. The authority is a limited right to use the organization's resources and to direct the efforts of its staff to perform certain tasks, which is delegated to a position, not to the person who holds the position. There are two types of authority: line and staff. Line authority creates a hierarchy of levels of control, where instructions are transferred directly from a manager to a subordinate and then to the other employee. Staff authority is an advisory, personal apparatus e.g. presidential administration, which has no hierarchy. Organization structure is an important part of organizing process and there are many tools to facilitate that.
Example 1. Organogram
Competent organogram structuring can significantly improve the efficiency of the organization or department. Organization chart is a diagram displaying organization posts written in boxes and arrows, connecting them and showing the subordination of positions and relations between company departments and workers. Organizational chart should be a proactive management tool, not a reactionary. It shouldn’t reflect the current hierarchy and chain of command in the company, but the one which is more consistent with the goals of the company. Therefore, this scheme should be developed by senior management, in cooperation with the HR department, discussed with the heads of key departments. Such a diagram should be the goal to which the organization wants to strive to improve the effectiveness of their work. If the organization is too large, the chart can be divided into smaller ones. Organogram must clearly show the company's hierarchy and subordination structure. One of the largest threats to the company's performance is the double subordination of employees. It is important to comply with horizontal layers of the chart. Employees of the same status shall be placed on the same horizontal line, even if some of them directly subordinate to the supreme manager, and some to the interim manager. This allows employees to forge interagency communication on their horizontal level more effectively, helping to communicate with people endowed with the same amount of responsibility. The lack of qualitative interaction between departments reduces the efficiency of the company.

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data.
This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical.
This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.
