Managing Up

Org. Chart

As a manager, it's often the case that you must present an organizational chart to your VP. You know your key deliverables, but how are you going to organize your team? Well, an easy and convenient way can be achieved by using Mermaid, specifically the flowchart diagram. Even though Mermaid is widely used, it doesn't have support for work breakdown structure diagrams, like PlantUML does. Please find an example below.

flowchart TD A[M2] --> B[IC1]; A --> C[M1]; C --> D[IC1]; C --> E[IC1];

The code to generate the above diagram is this:

flowchart TD
  A[M2] --> B[IC1];
  A --> C[M1];
  C --> D[IC1];
  C --> E[IC1];
