An Organization Chart or Organogram is a representation of the hierarchy of power within the organization. In other words, it is a diagram used to show the flow of power within an organization. An Organization Chart always starts with the highest authority and trickles down to the one with the lowest authority. Preparing an organizational chart should be done with so much attention to detail. This is because a small mistake can result in so much damage to the reputation of the authorities involved. It can also result in confusion during consultation in case of assistance needed. Keep reading to find out more about the key elements of an Organization Chart.

Hierarchy

As stated above, an Organization Chart is used to show the flow of power within an organization. Therefore the primary element which should always be included in an Organization Chart is the hierarchy of power. The hierarchy is always indicated using rectangles containing the positions held by the employees and arrows pointing towards the flow of power.

The hierarchy of power is very important when creating an Organization Chart. This is because it is the one which will be used as a reference in case someone needs assistance.

Geographical Location

The geographical location should also be put into consideration especially if the organization has various branches in different locations. The Organization Chart can either be a divide in two. This can include an internal organizational structure and an external Organization Chart. The man internal Organization Chart shows the flow of power within the particular center. On the other hand, an external Organization Chart is a summary of the flow of power both within and outside the organization. It includes all centers involved. It can summarize all the centers and the topmost power is the one who is in charge of al, the centers.

Number of Employees

The number of employees is also an important aspect of an Organization Chart. This is because of the more the employees the more the posts of authority available. For example, in a typical group, if the members are very few, there could be a chairman, a treasurer, and a secretary. However, if the group is very large, it might require a chairman, a vice-chairman, a secretary general, treasure and an assistant treasurer and many other posts. Therefore, the number of employees largely affects the outlook of the Organization Chart.

Preparing an Organization Chart depends on a number of factors. The most important among them is the hierarchy. Hierarchy refers to the flow of power from the highest to the lowest. The one with the highest authority is always placed at the top of the Organization Chart. From there, the arrows point downwards to various other authorities until the lowest power is achieved. An Organization Chart also takes into consideration the geographical location of the organization. If the organization has various branches located at different places, then they should also be taken into consideration. The number of employees also largely influences the preparation of an Organization Chart.
