Organization Chart, Continued
UNITY: Unity involves each component on the chart relating to the other
components. No branch, unit, or section can exist by itself. Each element
must be clearly subordinate to a command authority.
As a general rule, make the blocks in an organization chart proportional.
The command block is usually the largest with successive level blocks
proportionally smaller. An exception is the functional chart where you
should allow more room for descriptive statements. Stagger blocks on levels
with numerous subdivisions to conserve space.
Figure 2-9 shows an organization chart redrawn with the numerous
subdivisions staggered to conserve space.
