Hierarchical Organization Structure

The hierarchical organizational structure is usually shown as a top-down pyamid system and can be used to illustrate the relationships between the entities in an organization.

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