Basic Org Chart in Smartart

There are many options to represent organizational hierarchy in PowerPoint. But, the problem is – most of them are pretty dull and overused.

Practial Issues with Smartart

There are some practical issues in using SmartArt diagrams for hierarchy in your business presentations. Here are some:

  • Managing font sizes in a SmartArt Org chart is tiresome. Since SmartArt decreases font size of your text to maintain the size of your text boxes in the chart, you usually end up with some awkward looking text boxes that have small fonts in big text boxes
  • There are no options to include photos of the staff that makes your organization charts memorable
  • It is not easy to portray matrix relationships or level wise relationships with SmartArt

In this article, we will show you some interesting ways to represent organization hierarchy. You’ll see how it pays to go completely creative and fresh in representing these relationships.

All the example templates you see in this article are part of our 750+ PowerPoint Charts & Diagram templates for CEOs. The pack contains everything required for a business presentation from Arrows, Business Concepts, editable graphs and charts. All the templates are completely editable and comprehensive.

1.    Representing matrix relationships

Relationships in an organization are complex. For example, a product line may have reporting responsibilities to multiple functions or vice versa. The usual charts are inadequate to capture these complex relationships.

That is why you need to go beyond the usual representations. A matrix structure like the one you see above comes in handy to represent matrix relationship.
