Appendix V. Charting the Decision-Making Structure of an Organization.
Wallen, John L.
This appendix contains instructions in how to chart the decisionmaking structure of an organization. Included is discussion of the Line of Delegation or Accountability, a code for indicating the kinds of influence any position may exercise in relation to a decision, description with illustrations of the form of the chart, a list of the steps involved in constructing the chart, and general comments in answer to six common questions: (1) How does the decisionmaking structure relate to a delegation chart? (2) Does the chart show how much authority a position has? (3) Why aren't some positions called "staff" and some called "line"? (4) How does a position guide relate to the decisionmaking structure? (5) Does a chart of the decisionmaking structure really solve the problems of overlapping authority or of gaps in authority? (6) Won't consulting with others be quite costly and time-consuming? This document and SP 002 155-SP 002 180 comprise the appendixes for the ComField Model Teacher Education Program Specifications in SP 002 154. (JS)
