Functional Decomposition Diagram

Functional decomposition is a business analysis technique for breaking down a business operation into functional components.

A Functional Decomposition Diagram shows a hierarchical organisation of the business functions that comprise the business operation.
It is distinct from a process flow diagram, which shows the sequence of events of a business operation or function.

The main purpose of functional decomposition is to break up a large or complex business operation or function into smaller and more manageable chunks. It therefore facilitates understanding of the business operation or function and hence is a useful tool in conducting analysis and design.

Functional decomposition can be used to break up a large or complex business operation into smaller components, prior to developing process flow diagrams.

In our case James Smith Org which runs James Smith IPL not only runs into Cricket but also runs business into Domestic  Airlines and Beverages

IPL Cricket itself has sub functions of Selecting players in auction or watching players in other cricket events, also we are into Cricket Services like giving expert opinion on coaching , the 3rd function is Team Branding and Marketing to ensure higher ROI
