Hierarchy in Project Management

Hello, to close a long discussion between management and my PMO, could you please tell me if a document exists to demonstrate the hierarchy within a project? Between a project manager, a project coordinator, business analyst, sponsor, wholesaler... Who supervises whom? Thank you.

No Generic Project Hierarchy

Hello, there is no general answer to you question, applicable to all cases.
Each project has its own management plan, defining specific procedure, roles and responsibilities of the project team members, as well as the relationships/interactions between all contributors and stakeholders.

Triangular Project Hierarchy Structure

Sponsor is at top of a triangle. He is supported by a Project Manager who directs the Project Coordinator. A Business Analyst is a satellite outside the pyramid feeding information to both the Sponsor and the Project Manager while not reporting to either as the analyst provides information that the Sponsor and Project Manager weighs with other information when making project decisions.
