9781904838425: Making the Matrix Work: How Matrix Managers Engage People and Cut Through Complexity

Global customers, supply chains and more integrated business functions mean that work now cuts across the traditional vertical silos of country and function. But the 'solution' of the matrix structure also brings multiple bosses, competing goals and higher levels of complexity. Traditional management training prioritizes clarity, predictability and control.

In a matrix we need to be able to balance this with the ability to tolerate ambiguity, manage uncertainty and decentralize control. Managers need an expanded toolkit to help them move from the hard to the soft, from the concrete to the ambiguous and back again depending on the situation. Making the Matrix Work introduces some new ideas and practical tools in 3 key areas:

* Leading people beyond clarity to flexibility A matrix trades clarity for flexibility. We need to create enough clarity on goals and roles and to align with others; but we also need to cope with ambiguity, manage complex trade-offs and dilemmas and deal with higher levels of conflict.

* Being connected and effective We set up a matrix to improve cooperation and communication across the silos but be careful what you wish for! It is easy to become over-connected to poor quality meetings, teams and communication. More teamwork, meetings and emails are not the answer.

* Creating control by giving it away. The complexity and diversity of the matrix can undermine trust and lead to an increase in central control and bureaucracy. We need to prevent this by building trust, empowering and creating commitment. Accountability without control and influence without authority are the norm.

Kevan Hall's new book will help you develop your matrix mindset and will show you how to establish and engage networks that do not depend on role, control or authority to get things done. This book gives individuals working in the matrix the tools to take control of their own goals, role and success and shows matrix managers how to lead others to make their matrix really work.

Review:

A much needed new look at managing and leading in complex modern organisations. Practical tools you can implement to speed up your company.―Bob Morton, Head of People Development Competence Centre, Europe-MEA, Ciba Specialty Chemicals

We want our companies to be faster, simpler and easier to run - this refreshing blend of challenging ideas and practical tools shows us how.―Karl Kahofer, Group President Europe and Asia Pacific, Rubbermaid/IRWIN

The book is accessible, easy to read and practically written...I found the book gave me cause to examine how I manage, and I was able to take away some practical ideas that I will apply in my own working environment.―Personnel Today

Speed is the key word for companies in the Asia Pacific Rim. Kevan's remarkable...book comes from his long practical experience. New tools and techniques from this book can be applied in many different countries without any cultural difference.―Professor Jae Ho Park. Yeungnam University, South Korea

Intensely practical. Hall's book is a highly stimulating guide to creating a more efficient business. Any global firm would benefit form the chapter on managing across time zones by organising continuous 24-hour working.―Director

Globalization, technology and scale can lead to growth and success, but they also bring dysfunctional baggage. Kevan shows how to get off the organizational 'hamster wheel' and focus on what is important.―Geoff Armstrong, Director General, CIPD

An eminently practical book, good at giving pragmatic, realistic tips that can help the reader to reframe and reflect on one's practice, and change behaviour without the guilt from being 'stuck' in an outdated managerial mindset. This is a well-organised and enthusiastic synthesis of good managerial practice.―People Management

Descripción Nicholas Brealey International. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Making the Matrix Work: How Matrix Managers Engage People and Cut Through Complexity, Kevan Hall, The world of work has changed, no longer fitting the traditional, vertical lines of function and geography. Today, work is much more horizontal - cutting across silos and extending beyond the organization. Today is a matrix world. But how do you manage in this world? The answer, according to this intensely practical book, is not by changing structures, but by changing mindsets and building skillsets. The answer is to develop 'matrix managers' - managers who are able to take advantage of the opportunities the matrix offers both the organization and themselves and individuals.
