The number one rule with organisational chart is you should have one when you need one. Okay too far gone - but still, today is superior to tomorrow, and also this week is quite a bit superior to next season. Why? Well the organisational chart is not actually about empowering the organisation. What?!? You heard that right - its about empowering yourself to released, to delegate, first and foremost to delegate well. Sounds good - at least it must. Should you aren't focussed on letting go then contemplate two serious questions?

  1. Why are you running your business? To generate money obviously, but surely you desire freedom too. Freedom to try and do what you long for to undertake, when you wish to accomplish it. You aren't constructing a business on the table - it truly is there available for you - so lets make sure all of us that which you want.

  2. How are things visiting build this business if everything and also is dependent upon you?

Building an organisational chart now is easier than you imagine it is actually. But, don't waste your time building one for your current organisation, at its current size featuring a current staff. You have to think forward to whatever structure and organisational chart you will want once the industry is two, three, 5 times bigger. Certain that means more boxes than people, but that is what we want.

If you create the organisational chart, create boxes for staff the person you don't have yet. This is actually the most crucial bit! You can see why shortly, however a case in point to create things clear.

As an example, shall we say you run this company and also have day by day responsibility for managing sales, marketing and finance - you have a few sales reps and a marketing guy but perform invoicing yourself and still have to handle every one of these guys too. You will have a partner who is the "stuff" - she's in command of Operations. So, your organisational chart needs you at the very top (as Shareholder), then another box immediately below along with you again (MD or CEO). Thus there are 2 boxes together with the MD reporting towards the shareholder(s). In the market to the side on the MD box you'll need the Sales Director as well as Operations Director, as well as a box for Finance Director. Then under Sales Director you want the Sales team manager (really) and after that under this you can start to place your salesforce. You do this for ones Marketing team and the Ops team, finance team etc.

Well, consider the organisational chart you could have just drawn. You now know what your location is choosing Developing a BUSINESS and being able to DELEGATE to others. Somehow, in growing this company it is advisable to find a Sales leader and eventually a Sales Director, etc. etc. Only by filling these positions are you considering competent to construct a successful business that will not entirely center around you doing everything
