Organizational Charts with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

An Organizational chart represents the structure of an organization in terms of work responsibility and rank position. It is a very convenient format for visually displaying formal relationships, in any size organization. Typically, an Organizational chart is made up of rectangular object blocks, that represent a job title, name of person, and the relationships associated with them.

There are several types of object block relationships in an Organizational chart:

  • Line:
    Direct relationships between superior and subordinate.

  • Lateral:
    Relationships between different departments on the same level of hierarchy.

    Organization chart: Lateral

  • Staff:
    Relationships between a managerial assistant and other employees.

    Organization chart: Staff

  • Functional:
    Relationships between contractors and other employees.

One of the main features of an organizational chart is its ability to be divided into smaller charts. This is convenient for large organizations with a more complex branched structure.

There are three different types of organizational charts:

  • Hierarchical:
    Describes the organizational hierarchy.

  • Matrix:
    Structure of an organization is categorized by types of job functions. All employees are organized by their role in the company, regardless of their position in the hierarchy.

  • Flat:
    People are oriented by work processes.

Organizational Charts Solution in ConceptDraw STORE

You can easily create a professional organizational chart with the help of object shapes from the Organization Chart Library. Here you will find various types of object blocks, connectors, and shapes depicting department or groups.

To begin building a chart, just drag object blocks representing different job positions onto the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM workspace. Arrange objects in the appropriate order and use connectors to show the relationships with each other.

NOTE: Connected blocks remain connected even when they are moved in the workspace.

One of the challenges of organizational charts is the requirement for regular updating. However, with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM reformatting and making modifications to chart details is fast and easy as shapes remain connected when they are moved, and position object blocks have editable functionality.

Relationships between employees can be described in detail using text notes, or by using colors or different formatting to distinguish them. For example, you can use dotted lines to demonstrate a low priority relationship, and thick lines to emphasize higher priority ones.
