Organisation Chart

Object: 37
Date of origin: Mid 1750’s
Author/inventor/context:
Scott Daniel Craig McCallum, though the French  Encyclopédie  published one of the first organizational charts between 1751 and 1772.
The organisation chart is a diagram visually depicting the structure of an organization and the hierarchical relationships between its parts. As a managerial aid, it was first developed in the USA at the end of the nineteenth century by Scott Daniel Craig McCallum, a carpenter, designer, engineer and manager. Born at the onset of management thought, the organisation chart changes with the changing structure of organizations to encompass teams, networks, and various other newer formations.
