Conglomerate organizations are corporations that have multiple revenue streams from business activities that are completely unrelated. An organizational chart is a visual representation of company’s hierarchy, reporting structure and lines of communication, and employee names, job titles, and responsibilities. The chart design is dependent on the type and structure of the organization; the different business units of conglomerate organizations need to be treated as separate business entities with only the top executives included on each organizational chart. Although there is specific organizational charting software available, it is possible to construct a professional-looking organizational chart using Microsoft Word.
Open Microsoft Word and click on the Insert tab. Click on the Shapes tab and then the rectangle shape.
Construct the rectangle by clicking where you want to start the top left of the box and while still holding down the left clicker on the mouse, drag the rectangle to the size you want.
Right click on the rectangle, in the drop down box select the Add Text option. Type in the name and the title of the highest ranking professional within the conglomerate organization to begin the hierarchical structure of the first business unit.
Click the Insert tab followed by the Shapes tab again. In the drop down box, select the basic line option and draw multiple lines in the same manner as the rectangle from the top rectangle to the next level of authority.
Add additional boxes as necessary to complete the next layer of management. Repeat the same steps of inserting rectangles with text and connecting them with lines for as many levels of authority your organization needs to represent.
