Topic: 
What Does It Mean To “work in a matrix”?

For project leaders, ‘working in a matrix’ means being able to lead teams without authority to deliver team goals and outcomes. Without authority, project leaders need to focus on using a collaborative team-based approach to create essential buy-in among team members.

In this session, you will learn what MM 2.0 collaboration looks like and why it is important in a matrix. You will learn about best collaborative methods to develop your skill and knowledge in the practice of these important collaborative techniques. Successful project leaders build both buy-in and commitment within the team to achieve more effective satisfaction with the project customer and stakeholders.

Cathy Cassidy, a Certified Matrix Management 2.0™ Master Consultant, has trained thousands of project leaders and team members on using collaborative methods for planning any type of project, leading a team to make decisions and solve problems as well as innovate business solutions. Join us to learn how a new approach to collaborating will enable you to work effectively in a matrix.
