The issue under analysis here is that of complex reporting lines.
This is one of a series of articles on solving common data issues derived from in-house experience of Consulting projects using OrgVue
The following schematic identifies common scenarios, the table below gives indicative solutions:
|Fig.||5 common reporting line complexities||Resolution|
|1||Matrix / dotted line reporting||Use multiple parent IDs and switch between them|
|2||Multiple hierarchies (e.g. employee and cost centre)||Tag the parent of the 2nd hierarchy with parent:secondary_id|
|3||Frequent changes (graduate scheme, rotation, restructuring)||Link to performance data and consider setting a baseline|
|4||Out of directorate/location reporting||Decide which entity to report on consistently and footnote it|
|5||“Pooled” reporting, shift working||Allocate a principal manager and use comments to add detail|
