In one of our previous articles, we discussed organizational chart best practices. Now let’s take a look at types of organizational structure charts which can be used in different scenarios. And you don’t have to worry about creating them too. Our organizational chart software supports all the types mentioned below.
Organizational Structure Types
The hierarchical model is the most popular organizational chart type. There are few models that are derived from this model.
In a hierarchical organization structure, employees are grouped with every employee having one clear supervisor. The grouping is done based on few factors, hence many models derived from this. Below are few of those factors
- Function – employees are grouped according to the function they provide. The below image shows a functional org chart with finance, technical, HR and admin groups.
- Geography – employees are grouped based on their region. For example in USA employees might be grouped according to the state. If it’s a global company the grouping could be done according to countries.
- Product – If a company is producing multiple products or offering different services it can be grouped according to the product or service.
These are some of the most common factors, but there are many more factors. You can find org chart examples for most of these types in our diagramming community.
A functional organizational structure chart, a variation of the hierarchical model
This is the dominant mode of organization among large organizations. For example Corporations, Governments, and organized religions are hierarchical organizations with different levels of management, power or authority.
In a Matrix organizational structure, the reporting relationships are set up as a grid, or matrix, rather than in the traditional hierarchy. It is a type of organizational management in which people with similar skills are pooled for work assignments, resulting in more than one manager to report to (sometimes referred to as solid line and dotted line reports, in reference to traditional business organization charts).
For example, all engineers may be in one engineering department and report to an engineering manager. But these same engineers may be assigned to different projects and might be reporting to those project managers as well. Therefore some engineers might have to work under multiple managers in their job role.
This is an organizational chart type mostly adopted by small companies and start-ups in their early stage. It’s almost impossible to use this model for larger companies with many projects and employees.
The most important thing about this structure is that many levels of middle management are eliminated.This enables employees to make decisions quickly and independently. Thus a well-trained work force can be more productive by directly getting involved in decision-making process.
This works well for small companies because work and effort in a small company are relatively transparent. This does not mean that employees don’t have superiors and people to report. Just that decision making power is shared and employees are held accountable for their decisions.
So in summary, when deciding the suitable organizational chart, it is important to have an understanding of the current organizational structure of your company.

The ones shown above are the most commonly used org chart structure types. But there are plenty more models which have various advantages and disadvantages based on the situation and organization. You can easily experiment with different models using our org chart software.
