Project Organization Chart

The project organization chart is an input/output device that serves a very valuable role for the project management team and or the project management team leader in the process of keeping a thorough and careful organizational record of the project’s processes. It is particularly effective in the attempts to thoroughly and carefully keep careful track and record the actual project staff deployment processes that have been implemented within the scope of the project and any particular relationships between these specific project staff members during the project. Specifically speaking, the project organization chart is a graphically detailed document that outlines and in some cases heavily details the particular and specific project team members that have been assigned to work on a particular project, as well as how exactly these individual project team members will interrelate with one another over the course of the project life cycle as well as in the stages leading to and following.

This term is defined in the 3rd and the 4th edition of the PMBOK.


  1. I would like to see – if you can send me something- showing where in the organizational chart of project management the Quality Assurance Analyst falls compared to the Business Analyst. I am a Business Analyst and they just placed me under the QA manager- to report to the QA manager. I think from an audit stand point and an organizational standpoint, that is not logical.
    Thank you,
