your organizational chart is dead  

Revive it with an Org Graph

Classic Org Chart Software view

Caution: Get ready to go deep with state of the art organizational design, structure, documentation and visualization software.

Deep organizational thinkers know the effectiveness of Org Charts and Org Chart Software has reached a limit.  They know modern day organizations are more complex than grandfather’s hierarchical structures are capable of addressing; they know there must be a better way to design, structure, document and visualize their organization.

These thinkers are saying: “Sure, we still need to understand who we report to and what others in our organization look like, and we need to know what jobs we have open. But, there is so much more, and with the right tools and methods, we are ready to take it all to the next level, we are ready!”

OGraph is the deep thinkers’ org chart software tool, OCM™ is their model and method for capturing their deep thinking.

They are addressing modern organizational complexity by leveraging Graph Database Computing Theory, the Organizational Cognizance Model™ and The 14 Point Checklist™.

These deep thinkers are getting their heads around the Organizational Cognizance Model™ and Organizational Graphs.

Say goodbye to your old org chart software and Meet OGraph, Your modern Organizational Graph Software


CEO: Who is doing what, and why?
Individual Contributor:
What am I doing, and why?

We are on a mission to create organizational cognizance for everyone in the company, from the CEO who is asking “Who is doing what, and why?”, to the individual contributor who wants to know “What am I doing, and why?” Imagine two sides of a coin, on one side your CEO can see and understand why we are hiring a new person and on the other side a new individual contributor (IC) starting with your firm can answer “What am I doing and why?” – both able to see and understand how the answers complete the Organizational Cognizance Model™ via this org graph and updated org chart software.

The Organizational Cognizance Model™ Visualized With OGraph

We are dedicated to the employee who suffers under the daily yoke of organizational confusion and dysfunction. To smash this confusion and dysfunction, we developed the Organizational Cognizance Model™ (OCM) and the 14 Point Checklist. OGraph organizational chart software is anchored in the model. OCM is the result of 12 years of focus, and more than 15,000 hours helping 100s of organizations eliminate confusion and dysfunction by helping everyone answer the root questions that are at the core of: Who is doing what, why, and what am I doing, and why?

We Wrote the Book on Organizational Graphs

Our clients have suffered through the same thing you are experiencing now: How do we capture, update, visualize and interact with the complexity inherent in today’s modern organizational structure?

Since 2007 we have been  facilitating and teaching the OCM™ method inside companies and organizations and our challenge was the same, we had no perfect way to capture the work, easily update it, make it user friendly for the individual contributor, and, certainly no way to visualize it.

Like all great ideas, the Org Graph Org Chart software solution came from a casual conversation between two students of two different games and a napkin – i.e. a collaboration.

Death Of the Org Chart is a user guide, and facilitation how-to. It is a manual to reference that explains in depth the software and how it ties to the Organizational Cognizance Model™. It includes detailed “how to” facilitations and the theory behind OCM™ and your Org Graph software. $29.95 Hardback. (Kindle and Paperback available too.)

Immediate ROI: Watch How an Organizational Graph Transforms the On-Boarding of a New Employee using the latest in org chart software – Real Data Example

Org Charts and Org Chart Software show hierarchies and support egos. We believe work gets done through accountable and cognizant People. People who own their Job and the Positions and roles that make up their Job. With an Organizational Graph in play your new individual contributor (IC) Jennifer will have, at hand, the answers to 14 core questions that will drastically shorten Jennifer’s time to effectiveness.

Jennifer will know: Who is my boss, what is the Purpose of my Job and the Positions I fill, what Workflows do I participate in, what Processes do I follow, what Systems do I interface with, what are my Objectives, what are the Key Results I need to achieve, what Meetings am I part of, what Teams do I play on, and what Entities, Projects, Customers, Clients do I interact with, who do I turn to as my Coach, who is my Mentor, what Skills must I have?

Reflect on your company and think about how long it takes a new employee to really get up to speed, if ever, to this level of organizational cognizance. Then think how much you are leaving on the table by not offering these self-serve answers.

"When I sat down, faced the reality, and modeled the cost to my company of not bringing new people up to speed using the 14 Point Checklist, I saw it was in the hundreds of thousands.”

- Clay G, CEO

“The really cool thing about using an Org Graph was to get all of our people into the game. Once our Individual Contributors saw how this was something we were doing “For Them” instead of “To Them”, they bought in and the Org Graph bloomed with amazing detail - all supplied by the people who really know what’s going on, amazing.”

- Bryan B, CEO

"Our engagement is up, our teams are more effective, people are able to go directly to the right person for an answer, when we want to change something we can SEE who it will impact and get them involved. All of this was hidden in the past behind layers of folders and files, text and outlines, never in simple diagrams and pictures, very powerful.”

- David, CEO

"The different ways to visualize the same thing really is amazing, sometimes I would look at what we created via a Hierarchical view and it was just scrambled eggs, then I clicked on Symmetrical View, and think, ah ha there it is, then we drill down with the Marquee Zoom tool and it just becomes clear, truly amazing.”
