Free Diagram Template: Block Org Chart

By Carole Snitzer on Oct 23, 2012 in Tips and Tricks

Once a month, we post a free, downloadable Gliffy template here on the Pirate (B)log. This month, we’re offering a block org chart for you to download.

Looking for a better way to describe project staffing? Our very own Todd created this chart to outline the resources we needed for two different projects. The names have been changed, but the roles are real. Helpful hint for small teams: Do you have more roles than names? So do we! It’s OK to put the same name in several different slots.
