Organization Charts

January 22, 2015

An effective way to review key staff is to have them separately draw up two organization charts to see how they view their role.

The first chart is what they think their role is showing who they report to, who reports to them, lateral associates and support personnel.  The second chart is what they would like it to be.  Rarely, would the two be the same.

The purpose of the charts is to begin discussions about the effectiveness of each person’s positioning and how they think they could be more effective, their jobs better and the organization enhanced.  The discussions should be held individually and should provide insights of how the organization functions, each person’s role in the big picture and indicated ways for improvement.

After the individual meetings, two more charts would be prepared for a group meeting with all participating.  One chart would show the probable reality of the overall present situation and the second would have a suggested plan to move the participants and organization forward.

This tool, if used properly, can provide great benefits and insights.
