A great post by Garret Scott over at the MindJet Blog gives tips and practical examples on how to get more meaning into and out of organisation charts. Garret demonstrates how to capture new insights using the MindManager org chart format.
Garret's 3 three tips are:
- add relationships (where the real power operates, perhaps?)
- add comments (insights and observations - overt and covert?)
- add boundaries (highlight the silos or add clarity?)
