    Before to ask I searched and found here and here similar questions with provided answers. Generally speaking, I understand (more or less vague) what it is about, but I need also some examples.

    Like in the mentioned cases, I want to make a wordpress site for an organization that has several departments and many sub-departments. The requirements are similar:

    1. There is a main section with pages/posts.
    2. Departments have their own sections with pages/posts.
    3. Sub-departments also have their own sub-sections with pages/posts.

    What is the optimal solution? Multisite or one site? Examples?

    Probably you are better with just one site, is easier to maintain, if you need to organize the people by their work areas and limit the categories they can publish/edit, I'd recommend you 3 plugins:

    * Edit Flow
    * Blog in blog
    * Role-Scoper

    For a comprehensive discussion on use cases on multisite, check this:
