Step 1. Place your cursor on where you want to insert the chart and click Insert > SmartArt. See screenshot:

Step 2. Click Hierarchy in the left pane, and select one style you need from the list. Then click OK to insert the SmartArt. See screenshot:

Step 3. Then type the highest level person in the top text box, in this case, I type President. See screenshot:

Step 4. Continue to finish the other textboxes. You can see the below example.

Tip: If you just need two text boxes in this rank, you can select a text box and press Backspace key to delete it. On the other hand, you also can add a new text box by selecting a text box and right click > Add shape to add a new text box. See screenshot:

  • Add Shape After: Add a shape on the right of the selected box and is at the same rank of the selected box.
  • Add Shape Before: Add a shape on the left of the selected box and is at the same rank of the selected box.
  • Add Shape Above: Add a shape above the selected box and is at the higher rank of the selected box.
  • Add Shape Below: Add a shape below the selected box and is at the lower rank of the selected box.
  • Add Assistant: Add a shape below the selected box and is working as an administrative secretary for the selected box title.

Step 6. You can format and design the chart as you need from Design and Format tabs. See screenshot:

Here, I just change the color and style of the organization chart, see the result:
