Org Chart / Company Structure Exercises


We currently just walk through the org chart / company structure as part of our Induction course however I'm looking to make this more interesting and indeed memorable. Does any one know of any good exercises, I'm currently thinking of adapting the game 'Guess Who' or 'Top Trumps' but any suggestions would helpful.

  1. Org Chart Idea
    You can get blank jigsaws that you can print the chart onto and get them to re-assemble in pairs or small groups. Use vivid colours to denote functional departments and differing symbols to represent other job types / grades or any other relevant distinction.

    Or you could get the company to change over to a team-based structure and throw the org chart away! I and many others here will be happy to help your people deal with the change and uncertainty thus engendered!


  2. Org Chart / Company Structure Exercises
    Hi Becky, one the participants on our last Brain Friendly Learning workshop came up with a brilliant idea for exactly this. They gave the new starters a digital camera and a map of the building and invited the group to go and find and take photos of key people in the organsation. It combined the usual ‘tour’ session with the organisational chart session and the old ‘wheeling the big cheeses in’, in a fabulously rich and multisensory way. Another organisation I worked with did a slightly ‘safer’ version using pictures that were already posted on the company intranet. They turned it into an online tresure hunt.

    Hope this helps.


  3. learning about the company with a simulation

    I’ve used learning by doing simulations on induction courses to give people an understanding of the company. They are fun to take part in, and because they are designed around the company’s own activities and structure, they are directly relevant and give delegates the bigger picture as well as the interdependencies. Partipants can run the simulated company themselves, and then work in project groups to do process mapping of how it worked. Lots of intererest, motivation, and learning.

    Good wishes,
