Master the Matrix
Accountability can help or hinder your project. In the past, accountability was often synonymous with blame. It created fear, forced people to cover their backsides, and sabotaged learning. This kind of accountability did little to improve performance.
Are your team members challenged with multiple initiatives and conflicting priorities? Are you struggling to make commitments your team can keep when team members don’t report to you? Welcome to a matrix organization!
People who lead projects in a matrix understand the challenges of building buy-in and commitment. Some project leaders fear losing control of the project if the team participates.
