    2 Brief Characteristic of the Method

    Objective and Purpose

    The "Organizational Chart" (OGC), also referred to as "Organizational Diagram" or "Organization Structure Plan", represents the macro and micro organizational structures in a graphical form (macro: company or large project, micro: team or small project). The representation comprises organizational units (jobs or positions) and their corresponding task, competence, and responsibility structures.

    The organizational chart reflects the selected organization model; it is the task of the project management to select the suitable organization model for the individual projects.

    Means of Representation

    The various representation forms are, e. g.:

    The vertical organizational chart (tree diagram) is the representation form used most often; organizational units are represented by rectangles, relationships are represented by connecting lines. Because of lacking space, the subtrees are often represented in a column form (list with indentations).
