Organizational charts are important enterprise communication tools that spell out both vertical and lateral relationships between departments, working groups, and individuals. From a strictly tactical perspective, org charts lay out key reporting relationships and chain of command.
This PowerPoint tool is designed to help you visually document your IT department's organizational structure by:
- Discussing different options for organizing the IT department: around services, work roles, or a complete team.
- Presenting a sample service-based IT department organizational structure derived from common practices.
Keep the resulting diagram on hand to augment IT department annual reports and use it as an ongoing internal management tool.
This downloadable tool is associated with the research note, "Redefining Job Roles Due to Downsizing."
