Working in a Matrix Organization: Techniques for Project Managers

The multiple priorities and relationships of working in a matrix organization can be challenging, complex, and feel like chaos! This training explores what a matrix organization is, the advantages and disadvantages of it, as well as the impact of trying to successfully manage projects in a matrix. The matrix emphasis is on sharing expert/specialist resources across projects that may, themselves, have shared leadership between project management and functional management. Because of this, for a matrix organization to be successful, it must emphasize team, collaboration, relationships, accountability and shared systems and processes. The ability to be proactive and act independently while still maintaining the ability to act as a team is important. This training introduces several tools and techniques for working in a matrix successfully. These include: influencing without authority, building relationships, and managing at different levels within the organization.
