In a Business there are many different key words you need to know in the Organisational Structure of a Business and here they all are...
Manager or Line Manager - This is someone who is directly in control of someone else. E.g. Sir Alex Ferguson is directly in control of Wayne Rooney so he is a Manger or Line Manager.
Subordinate - This is a person who has someone responsible for them higher up in the Hierarchy Table.
Hierarchy - This is the layers of Management in an organisation or business.
Chain of Command - This shows the reporting system from the top of the Hierarchy to the bottom.
Delegation - The process of passing authority down the Hierarchy of a business therefore spreading power down towards shop-floor staff.
Delegation can also be known as giving responsibility or a task to someone else. Such example is of a business asking someone else to make their product.
