Organization structures

One of the most common ways of thinking about the architecture of enterprise is the organization chart. Everyone is interested in the “org chart” because it lays out many of the important functional specializations and power relationships in the enterprise. This tends not to be a stable architecture, because in most enterprises the chart itself, as well as incumbent responsibilities of groups and individuals, is in a constant state of flux. Organizational structures included hierarchy, matrix, M-corp, etc.

Elements:

  • Organization
  • Employee
  • Role
  • Reporting relationship
