If we are supposed to believe in the power of design and visual communication then why don’t we have more org charts like this one?

Both for ourselves and our departments we are a part of and for communicating who we are, what we do, and why it matters to other part of the company or even outside stakeholders or partners.

  • Along the left I show for each level in the organization the time horizon that those people should be concerned with.
  • In the center I have listed the major groups: Associate Creative Director, Head of Engineering, Head of Design, and Head of Program Management. Each of those groups have their various levels of Managers, Leads, Seniors, and Juniors.
  • Along the right side I have detailed out the responsibilities of each level and what types of decisions they should be making.
  • The other thing I like about this one is that it has more than just the design group, it’s about the ecosystem of roles, responsibilities, and relationships.
  • Note: ISD stands for Instructional Systems Designer.
