A business workshop focusing on matrix management will take place in Hertfordshire on Tuesday 19 June.
The one-day event - operating under the title “Why do we have matrix management and how can we make it work?” - will take place at Ashridge Business School in Berkhamsted.
Matrix management is where an individual has two reporting superiors, one functional and one operational. This regularly occurs in project management where an engineer reports to the chief engineer functionally, but reports to the project manager on operational project issues.
Matrix management is common place and this short course will explore different forms of matrix structure, why they exist and how managers within these structures can be effective.
Leading the workshop will be Andrew Campbell and Kevan Hall.
