Organizational Charts

An organizational chart may also be referred to as an “organization chart”, an “org chart” or as an “organogram”. Being a diagram that shows the structure of an organization as well as the relationships of its parts and positions, the organization chart can be used to graphically show the relationship of one officer to another. It can be also used for showing the relation of one department to another.

A company's organizational chart usually illustrates relations between people who work in a particular organization, including managers to subordinates, directors to managing directors’, chief executive officers to many different departments, etc. Once an organization chart becomes too large, it can be split into smaller charts. Such smaller charts can be used to describe separate departments within the organization.

There are three most commonly used types of organization charts, which are hierarchical, matrix and flat (or “horizontal”). Any of the mentioned can be created with the aid of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software by using the Organizational Charts solution that offers to use the pre-made samples and templates of the professionally designed org charts as well as a stencil library full of vector shapes for drawing the unique and smart-looking Organizational Charts.

Helping to show the relationships between different positions within the same organization, the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application created using organization charts and organizational chart solutions can be used for both individuals and employees to provide a comprehensive picture of reporting relationships, management levels, and work divisions. The Organizational Charts solution can be useful for many specialists within an organization, such as HR managers, project managers and other managers who intend to simplify their work in creating professional-looking organizational charts.


There is 1 stencil library containing 17 vector objects in the Organizational Charts solution.

Each level of this organizational structure is categorized by color. This allows you to look at the diagram and to see at once the highest levels of this structure.
