Matrix Management Check-Ups and Tune-Ups

Author: ; Published: Sep 21, 2011; Category: Matrix Management; Tags: None; One Comment»

Matrix organizations benefit from occasional check-ups and tune-ups.  Top leadership in most organizations is consumed by attention to strategy, systems, and major transactions of one kind of another.  How much time and attention is devoted to ensuring that the organization — its structure and functioning — is working optimally, or even as intended?  Oftentimes, structure is the neglected stepchild in the strategy-systems-structure triad.  What’s working well?  What’s not working so well? Where are there deficiencies in horizontal integration?  Where are there disconnects between vertical leaders and matrixed staff?  The list of check-up questions won’t be recited here but suffice it to say that a fraction of the attention invested in strategy, systems and major transactions will deliver bountiful benefits.  Check-ups lead to tune-ups and tune-ups can and should lead to performance breakthroughs that matter.
