How to quickly create Active Directory OUs In Powershell

   $domain = get-addomain | select -expand distinguishedname
   $facilities = "facilityname"
   $OUS = "Groups","Kiosks","Laptops","Users","Workstations"
foreach ($facility in $facilities) {
 New-ADOrganizationalUnit "$facility"
  foreach  ($OU in $OUS) {
   NEW-ADOrganizationalUnit “$OU” –path “OU=$facility,$domain”

A very simple script I made to quickly create some OUs with sub-OUs inside. Basically all I need to add is facility names and the OUs will be created for them.
The script took less than a minute to write but will probably save me up to 20 minutes!
