From Simplifying Complexity to Harnessing Complexity
Matrixed organizations are not new; we’ve been talking about managing in the matrix for a few years now. But things are more complex these days. Getting work done in the increasingly boundary-less business world we’re experiencing can be overwhelming, as familiar ways of doing things are no longer effective. People become paralyzed because it seems too hard and too risky to try to get things done, just at a time when bolder and faster action is more important than ever to remain competitive.
In the past, we taught people how to behave cooperatively—and even collaboratively—across organization silos. Getting work done today requires networks of formal and informal groups to behave collaboratively, quickly creating real synergy that achieves more than the sum of the parts.
