An organization chart, sometimes known as a "org chart," is a graphic that depicts a reporting or connection structure. The most common use of an org chart is to depict the structure of a company, government, or other organization. Org charts have a wide range of applications and can be organized in a variety of ways. They might be used as a management tool, a planning tool, or a personnel directory, among other things. Perhaps your organization does not function in a "command and control" manner, but rather through teams.
