Managing in today's complex environment is more challenging than ever. The addition of multi-functional teams, virtual work environments, and dotted-line reporting relationships has made the once "neat-and-tidy" hierarchical flowcharts we learned about in management 101 into an intricate matrix. Complicated webs make the "simple" job of getting things done not so simple, and this trend toward matrix management has created the need for a new leadership skill set. Managers are quickly flexing and shifting their focus away from a traditional "command and control" approach to a more fluid and flexible "influence and collaboration" strategy.
The Matrix Manager Inventory is a vital and timely training program that's designed to help both new and seasoned managers to acquire and develop the ability to flex between "command and control" and "influence and collaborate" in an attempt to master matrix management.
