Leading in a Matrix Organization

Dec 08, 2015

Overview

Dec 08, 2015

New York, USA
This program is hosted by IESE Business School. ICEDR sponsor companies may send 6 colleagues from all levels of the organization (not just HR). ICEDR partner business schools may send 1 participant.

The matrix organization is often used in situations where complex leadership structures result in roles being divided by geography, product, and function. Globalization is driving more organizations to adopt a matrix structure.

At the same time, cost issues are forcing management to consolidate roles, adding difficulty to the situation. For example, the senior plant manager in Bogota may now also be the company's senior regional representative for all of Latin America.

This shift brings particular leadership challenges associated with managing in a matrix environment. At this program, Mike Rosenberg, Assistant Professor of Strategic Management, IESE Business School will communicate the heightened complexity that global businesses face. Mike will lead a workshop where participants will be asked to consider how best to manage talent for this new reality.

In addition, Jennell Jones, Senior Director, Executive and High Potential Development at Pfizer will share her thoughts on leading in a matrix organization.

The Matrix and Global Complexity

The matrix organization is often used in situations where complex leadership structures result in roles being divided by geography, product, and function. Globalization is driving more organizations to adopt a matrix structure. At the same time, cost issues are forcing management to consolidate roles, adding difficulty to the situation. For example, the senior plant manager in Bogota may now also be the company's senior regional representative for all of Latin America. This shift brings particular leadership challenges associated with managing in a matrix environment. At this program, Mike Rosenberg, Assistant Professor of Strategic Management, IESE Business School will communicate the heightened complexity that global businesses face.
