Organizational Chart Templates
An organizational chart lists all the functions
within a company and establishes relationships between these functions.
Use of an organizational chart addresses the requirement of element
5.5.1 of ISO 9001 2008 standard, Responsibility and authority. This
element requires an organization to define “…responsibilities and
authorities …” within the organization. There are a number of formats
used for this purpose.
One of the most typical formats for an organizational chart is a block
diagram. The blocks are arranged in the hierarchical structure showing
reporting relationships of company’s functions and personnel. One of the
most visual formats is a pictorial organizational chart. If you have
access to a digital camera and color printers, this may be the way to
go. These charts are very easy to remember and use. This organizational
chart template is included in our
Documentation Set. A sample of this
type of organizational chart is shown below.
Another format of an organizational chart may be
as simple as a list similar to your hard drive directory structure shown
below. The benefits of this chart are a simple text format without
time-consuming photos or block diagrams. Our Documentation System Sets
include both templates: pictorial and a list Organizational Chart. Visit our
