sible for what area can be downright confusing, especially in large
corporations with multiple divisions, locations, and product lines. Rather
than using running lists of people’s names, titles, and responsibilities, it’s
more effective to use organizational charts. Org charts, as they’re called in
corporate circles, graphically display how a corporate hierarchy is structured.
Viewers can quickly see how the company is organized — either by
personnel, by function, by product, or by location. Not the corporate type? Well,
organizational-type charts can also be used to display family trees, biological
classifications, and other types of hierarchical information. Similarly,
diagrams also offer a visual solution to presenting complicated data, especially
data such as processes, workflow, relationships, and causes and effects.
Like tables and graphs, organization charts and diagrams provide important
but complex and sometimes tedious information visually, making it easier
and quicker for the viewer to comprehend. And with Microsoft Office 2007’s
new SmartArt feature, creating these charts and diagrams has never been
easier. This chapter covers everything you need to know to create both effective
and attractive org charts and diagrams.
