Five Not-So-Easy Pieces of Matrix Management

3.  Clarify internal partnership agreements

Cross-divisional partnership agreements are recommended to clarify and smooth relationships between management and staff of the various divisions. These agreements identify key factors in working relationships that need to be managed. Potential irritants and high-priority elements should be identified. Strategic Futures® has a defined method for helping you with this. Internal partnership agreements may address elements such as the following:

  • Standard Operating Procedures, needs for flexibility
  • Required lead times
  • Expected turnaround times/cycle times
  • There are more than a handful of other critical factors available to you through Strategic Futures®

The overarching objective is to make it easier for each of the partners to ask the other for something and to get it done.
