org chart

Short for "organizational chart," a diagram that clearly displays the structure of an organization and the roles and hierarchy of its various members. If they people at the top of the org chart have bad habits or poor work ethic, that is going to inevitably trickle down to the people at the bottom. We did away with the org chart, instead simply allocated the functional roles everyone needed to perform and while doing away with any kind of power structure.
