If you want to illustrate management and department positions in your company in a professional way, then this blog gives you several examples how you can do it.
We present a modern alternative to traditional box-and-line charts and default SmartArt diagrams.
Organizational charts are common visualization tool not only on HR-related meetings. Anytime you have a team cooperating on a project with other teams, or department to department communication, having a clear map of company structure makes it easier to plan the work. The org charts serve as a visual aid to see clearly who is responsible for a particular task or to whom you have to report.
However, in case of larger institutions, the organization trees can get pretty complex and hard to understand. Therefore adding there pictogram symbols to represent main managerial functions and departments will help you create a presentation that is easier to grasp.
Here are a few examples of modern organizational charts, illustrated with neat company positions roles icons that people will enjoy to look at.
A few common company structures and processes charts, which you may need to include in your slides are:
#1: Company Management Structure Chart
The classical structural diagram, where hierarchy is clearly visible: from the board of directors, CEO to managers of particular departments, such as Chief Financial Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, Operations or Legal Officers. If your department has subdivisions, you can illustrate them as well using the same color – as we used here in case of Product department and its Product Development and Production divisions.
Another example is Chief Operational Officer that supervises three areas – IT, Administration and Human Resources operations. Or Legal department covers here Legal and Compliance issues, all marked as green circles.
#2: Presenting details with Department or Division Diagram
Here’s the example of creative department structure design, which at the same time looks professional thanks to using consistent colors and aligned graphical elements. You can easily reuse such chart in your PowerPoint presentation, just replace text, icons and add or remove the sections.
#3: Senior Management Presentation Slide
A lot of corporate but also startup pitch presentations include this type of presentation slide. We propose you a stylish way how you can present your key management team: use pictures with color overlay + add icon representing each person position (notice outline icons of CEO, COO, CMO above) + consistent color use, one for each column. The result is professionally looking presentation created quickly even without a graphic designer
#4: Product Development Schemes
Research and development take a huge part in every company’s activity. That’s why we designed several diagrams to make it easier for you to convey the ideas:
- general product development schema. Notice harmonic set of color and that each element is associated with an outlined icon: the bulb symbolizes the concept, document with a magnifying glass – research, paper plane – prototype, network pictogram – the process of development, tools – engineering and rocket – launch stage. You can include some notes as well: e.g. where improvements should be made and who is responsible for that.
- process details of product development, starting from the concept or ideas to the final launch step.
- particular stage details with a place for longer text notes. On the picture, you can see an example of concept step slide. Even though there’s a big text box, the slide looks attractive from a design point of view.
So these were several examples of designing organizational chart: presenting your company hierarchy from the board, CEO, directors to specific department heads and subordinates; showing department diagram; presenting senior management and explaining product development flow.
