What’s the course about?

Matrix Management

Understand the benefits and potential pitfalls of the matrix management approach to organisational structure.

Matrix management is becoming a common structure for many organisations today. It’s a flexible approach to organising and managing teams and provides many opportunities to better share resources and skills within a business. It’s a collaborative approach that can increase engagement, provide career opportunities for employees, and deliver new and exciting ways of working.

A matrix style of management is not without its dangers though and some of the early implementations highlighted risks that businesses have learned to avoid with some adaptation of the original approach. Matrix Management 2.0 has consequently become the more usual framework.

This Matrix Management e-learning course sets out to provide your learners with a thorough understanding of this approach to organisational structure. It looks at the theory behind the concept and then expands into the nuts and bolts of making it work within your organisation.
