Hierarchical Org Structure

> Org Chart Knowledge > Hierarchical Org Structure
Posted by Akiko | 04/23/2020
The hierarchical organizational structure is usually shown as a top-down pyramid system and can be used to illustrate the relationships between the entities in an organization.

The power of the organization is centralized at the top of the pyramid, and all the decisions or commands will flow from the top to the bottoms. However, if someone at the bottom of the organization hopes to make a decision, he or she needs to ask for approval of the higher authorities. Finally, the decision will flow back to the original level.

The following picture displays the hierarchical organization chart of a manufacturing enterprise. More organizational chart examples can be found on our website, and Edraw Orgchating can help you customize them to fit your own purpose.

Hierarchical Organizational Chart

The hierarchical organizational structure also has its advantages and disadvantages. When the company wants to control all aspects of a few products, such as the designs, quality, production, distribution, publicity, and marketing, the hierarchical organizational structure can be of great help. The employees will have clear career paths and have the chance to build up working experience and become senior specialists.

But when there are too many levels of management, the flow of the information and decisions will be slowed down, and it may influence the speed of the company to cope with various crises.
