Matrix Management 2.0™
An MM 2.0™ Compliant Quick Guide

The guide walks you through SPARC™, five keys to improving any matrix — structure, productivity, accountability, relationship management and collaborative leadership — and the MM 2.0™ Matrix Maturity Model.
Written by Paula K. Martin, author of the Matrix Management 2.0™ Body of Knowledge and a dozen other books on matrix management, The Matrix Management 2.0™ Quick Guide serves as an introduction for newcomers, as well as a reference for practitioners already familiar with Matrix Management 2.0 solutions.

What you'll learn
In this Quick Guide, you'll learn why Vertical Management 1.0 and Matrix Management 1.0 are outdated systems, why using the old dual reporting method to create cross-functional alignment doesn't work, how to make teams truly collaborative, and why the fundamental principles of MM 2.0 — leading without authority, cross-functional cooperation, and alignment with the external customer — are critical to success. Topics include governance, a new approach to accountability, leading without authority, prioritizing across the enterprise, and much, much more.
Getting up to speed on the latest technology for leading and managing a matrix organization has never been quicker!
