Autodesk‘s OrgOrgChart (short for Organic Organization Chart) visualization tracks the changes in the company’s structure over time. Over 1,498 days between May 2007 and June 2011, the visualization shows when employees join, leave, or change managers. Acquired companies show up as explosive additions to the chart before they are gradually integrated into Autodesk’s structure. The visualization also captures the company’s 2009 restructuring, when the company changed the governance structure of many of its departments.
