Matrix Management Institute - What Can We Do For You?
Are You Looking for Matrix Management Solutions?
Any organization that needs to operate in two dimensions is a matrix organization. Running a matrix so that it’s aligned with and delivers your organizational strategy may require a shift in the way you lead and manage your matrix.
Matrix Management Training, Consulting, and Assessment Services That Work
We've got your back. Our expert end-to-end Matrix Management 2.0™ training and consulting services are designed specifically for people who work and lead in a matrix organization. From assessing your unique matrix challenges to structuring your organization and providing training and support for your matrix leaders and matrix teams, we can help you end internal competition for resources and improve cross-functional operations.
Matrix Management Training for Your Leaders and Teams
Our collaborative, team-based workshops are designed to help your matrix leaders and teams develop the knowledge and collaborative skills they need to succeed in their matrix organizations. Our training programs are based on Matrix Management 2.0, a fully-integrated system for operating any matrix organization more effectively. We also provide customized training solutions.
Collaborative Consulting Working Sessions for Matrix Leaders
You know your business. We know matrix management. Our collaborative working sessions support all stages of change from discovery through design and implementation. Working together, we create a customized solution that’s aligned with your unique strategic goals and matrix challenges—one that takes into consideration your readiness to plan for and put in place a new organizational operating system.
Matrix Organization Assessments
Is your matrix organization having difficulty operating cross-functionally, but you're not sure why? A matrix maturity assessment helps you identify specific root causes of your matrix challenges and establishes a matrix maturity baseline. This is the first step in transitioning to effective matrix management.
Organizational Design and Matrix Structure
Did you restructure your matrix organization recently but the problems remain? Successful restructuring requires more than moving boxes around on an "org chart". It requires a shift in thinking and an organizational design process that ensures alignment to the most important sectors of your organization. We use a three-phased collaborative team-based restructuring process to 1) understand your current state, 2) get commitment from the leadership team, and 3) design a two-dimensional structure that works for your organization and identifies the work effort needed to change.
Matrix Management Leadership Coaching
From letting go of control and building and managing partnership relationships to becoming a coach instead of a boss, our one-on-one matrix management coaching provides the boost your matrix leaders may need to be successful and lead without authority.
If you would like to introduce Matrix Management 2.0 concepts to your organization, but making a large commitment to training or consulting isn’t an option, consider a keynote presentation by the author and designer of MM 2.0, Paula K. Martin, or Cathy Cassidy, our Managing Director and lead facilitator. Your senior leaders’ annual kick-off meeting is a perfect opportunity.
