I’m sure you’ve seen the brilliant and ground-breaking concept map that Walt Disney drew in 1957. You should have, it’s been on Mind-mapping.org since mid-2008, but if you’ve missed it so far, it’s in our history article here: Roots of visual mapping.
Well, here’s another piece of outstanding visual thinking and communication apparently from even earlier – 1943 – and yet it looks fresh enough to have been designed yesterday: The Disney organization chart. As it says at the foot, “This Chart Designates Operations and Not Authorities.”
