How Matrix-Mature Is Your Leadership and Organization?

Many organizations make slower progress with the organizational keys — structure, performance and accountability — than they do with the leadership keys — accountability, relationship management and collaborative leadership. You might be at stage 1 or even 0 for the S (structure) key, demonstrated by a vertically focused organizational structure, and at stage 3 for the C (collaborative leadership) key, where leaders manage their teams using collaborative methods.

Matrix Management 2.0™ Maturity Assessment

Diagnosing what level of maturity the organization is currently operating at for each SPARC Key and Lever is the first step in determining a strategy for migrating to the new Matrix Management 2.0 operating system. If you’re ready to take that step, one of our quick and easy Matrix Management 2.0™ Maturity Assessment Plans, or a collaborative consulting session might be right for you.
