Guidelines to Create an Organization Chart:
Understand the Basics:
Before you create the organization chart, you should first understand why you want to create it in the first place. You might have heard it somewhere and it made you create the same chart for your organization but there are particular uses and purposes of these charts and if you are not going to fulfill its purpose, you should save yourself some trouble. On the contrary, if you are sure that you need the chart, you should understand the basics i.e. types, methods, and different ways to create the chart.
Select a Particular Type of Chart:
When it comes to organization charts, it seems that all this chart has is the names of the employees, executives, and owners of the company but that’s not all. The document might seem simple but the features that it presents make it a very valuable piece of information. That’s why there are various types of organization charts including; functional top-down charts, divisional structure charts, matrix charts, and flat charts. The information that is presented in the organization chart might be the same but it’s presented differently to suit a different purpose.
Decide if you Want to Use a Template:
There are readymade templates available online if you want to use an organization chart template. You might find it difficult but even with their complications and creative designs and themes, most of the templates are free of cost. Some websites offer professional-looking templates in exchange for money but those are very high-quality charts that only multinational corporations use. For a small-town domestic company, you can just use the free template of an organization chart. If you want, you can use a template or you can create your chart using MS Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
Enlist names with Designations and find Pictures:
On either type of organization chart, there are three elements; the name of the employee, his designation, and his picture. While you are creating the chart, you should first gather the information that will go on the chart. Start with the name of the CEO of the company along with his or her picture and then move to senior executives and top managers. Gradually keep going one level down until you reach the most basic employees of the company i.e. genitor. With each name, a designation should be written along with the name of the department in some cases and a picture of the employee to be put on the chart.
Add the Information and Finalize the Chart:
After you have got all the information and material, there is nothing difficult left except to add the text and pictures to the chart. You should start with the highest level of employees or partners in the company and gradually keep getting 1 level down to include everyone in the company. After the chart is completed, review it so that if any mistake or some information is missing, you can easily amend the chart.
