the Complexity of the Multidimensional Matrix
Presented by Dr. Jay
Today companies are doing business using at least a three
dimensional matrix consisting of functions, business units and countries.
While most companies have mastered the two dimensional matrix of functions
and business units, the three and four dimensional ( customers) structures
are a real challenge. As with all matrix organizations, the structure is the
easy part. The key to mastering complexity lies in the design of processes
and HR practices. Indeed, the more complex the structure, the more important
are the processes. The session will emphasize the planning process leading to
shared goals and objectives and the importance of rotational assignments. I
will give examples of what are the best practices that are emerging.
