Functional Breadth - Illustrative Organisation Charts

Functional Breadth measures the diversity and depth of organisational activity managed by the job.

Diversity encompasses the range of activities managed. Depth considers the degree of specialisation or concentration by the job in an area of work activity.

The more diverse and complex the organisational entity managed by the job the higher the rating on this factor.

Where the organisational entity managed is not large or diverse, then the span of influence exercised by the job is measured by the specialised expertise it provides.

Functional Breadth has twelve levels, to accommodate a wide range of organisational configurations, and a wide range of organisational sizes ranging from a single operator, such as a suburban medical practitioner, to a multi-national corporation..

The complexity of the organisational management task is also considered and ranges from positions engaged in a narrowly specified, non-specialist tasks, through to the management of several independent and complete corporations.

Functional Breadth therefore has to consider a wide range of circumstances to assess and compare a position's management task.

To assist in this measurement, a range of organisation structures and indicative Functional Breadth Levels are shown in the following.

   Level 12 Holding Company, and Level 11 Parent Company
   Level 10 Organisation with a Functional Structure
