Rationale: In flat organizations, authority and responsibility are delegated to the lowest opera-tional level possible. Vertical is incorrect because a vertical chart indicates a formal line of authority and communications. Traditionally, vertical charts indicate decision making at the upper levels of management. Circular indicates a concentric or circular chart, with the chief executive in the center and successive layers of authority. Horizontal refers to a horizontal, or left-to-right, chart that depicts the chief executive at the left, with lower layers of the authority to the right.
