Project management structure is the hierarchy of all the people involved in the project. The project management structure visually explains who needs to report to who in the project, and who takes directions from who.

An example of a project management structure is the following (The more indented a person is, the lower authority and importance his role has):

- Steering Committee
- Stakeholders
- Program Manager
-- Project auditor
-- Project Manager
--- Project Coordinator
---- Team members

PRINCE2, the equivalent of PMBOK in Europe, formalizes the project management structure the following way:

- Corporate/Program Management
-- Project Board (consisting of executives, senior users, and senior suppliers).
-- Project assurance (project auditor)
--- Project manager
--- Team manager
---- Team members
