Course Summary

Why Choose this Training Course?

Matrix management is a structure that uses specialist staff from different functional areas to work on projects or assignments being led by project managers. Staff in the matrix structure have two managers – their functional manager and their project manager. The functional manager maintains the line of authority over the day to day issues such as work allocation, performance, sign offs, etc. while the project manager has authority over the issues related to the project.

Since staff have to work and share information with staff from other areas, matrix management allows greater flexibility across organizations, provides staff with variety and the opportunity to apply their specialist knowledge, selects staff to suit the requirements of the project, and breaks down silos.
