Modeling structures directly in your org chart

The latest version of orginio comes with a great new feature allowing you to model new structures without having to modify your main org chart.

Maybe you have already noticed the new section “modeling” in the settings. This is where you need to go to create and manage modeling charts.

Click on the “+ MODELING” button, name the simulation, and you are all set to start modeling.

Switch to edit mode and carry out all the changes running through your mind. The options are manifold:

  • Use drag & drop to move people, positions or even whole departments to another place in the org chart
  • Add, change or delete departments, positions or people

KPIs included in your organizational chart will be updated automatically in real-time. Your initial org chart will not be affected by any changes made in the process.

You can create up to five different simulations in orginio allowing you to take into account several options. When viewing your org chart, you will be seeing a little dropdown list on top which makes it easy for you to switch between the main org chart and the modeling charts, if needed.

Sharing your simulation

Oftentimes, there is more than one person working on the modeling of org structures. Therefore, it is possible, to allow other users of the main org chart to view and edit the simulation as well.

Activate the modeling chart to which you want to add users by clicking on the little “play” button in the modeling section and then navigate to “user management” in the settings. Click on “+ USERS” to add any user to your simulation and determine their permissions.

Why model reorganizations?

The world today is one of change. That is also true for organizational structures.

Changes are important and necessary; however, they should be thought through thoroughly before they become effective.

orginio’s new simulation function makes it possible to visualize potential changes and see the impact on the organizational structure. Creating different options ensures well-informed decisions considering also the consequences of the reorganization before putting it into place.
