Managing a Matrix Team

Managing a Matrix Team

In today's uncertain climate, many organisations are turning to workgroups, cross-functional teams, task forces and special project teams in order to be faster and more flexible and to share resources across the organisation.

This course breaks down the characteristics of managing in different types of matrixed environments and introduces you to the principles and processes needed to ensure success when leading matrix-managed teams. You will have the opportunity to evaluate yourself against the four key skills of a matrix manager and then align the application of those skills to the four key challenges of matrix teams. Finally, you will develop your own stakeholder map, analyse each stakeholder according to their level of power and interest, and apply a well-known influencing model to your most important stakeholder relationships.
