MATRIX MANAGEMENT Definition & Legal Meaning

Definition & Citations:

Employees with dual responsibilities and dual bosses have multiple command-and-control structures. These employees have one boss, as project manager, for example, for day-to-day operations. They have another boss, a departmental head, for example, for functional responsibilities. Large projects or product development processes are most suited to this approach, dealing with situations with fluctuating workloads. Also refer to matrix organization.
