Flow Charts and Schematic Diagrams

These are useful when describing a sequence of events or when
outlining the relationship between several ideas. They can be
used to illustrate a hierarchy of concepts, such as a corporate
chain of command or different levels of authority. Also, divi-
sions of corporate jurisdiction, or various segments of a market
can be easily explained with charts. Be sure that your boxes
and connecting lines in these charts accurately reflect the
relationship between concepts.
     In a corporate organization chart, for example, individu-
als of equal rank could be shown in parallel on a vertical
hierarchy. Subordinates should be placed on the lower boxes
of the hierarchy. Managers (including you and me!) are often
sensitive to the level of their boxes relative to others.
