You can take a look at the structure of the current XML here
. You can see that we defined hierarchical data. The CEO is the root, the presidents are his direct children and so on. If you define a sibling of the CEO you will start a new structure. You need to keep in mind that there is no restriction in the structure when it comes to visualization.

feature of the RadDiagram
you need to make sure that your hierarchy has only one root. In other words you need to make sure that the company has pyramid like structure.
In case that you need to define more than one root, your structure becomes a graph and you will need to customize the default layout algorithm.
