Here is the explanation as to why this option is most suitable
In Matrix organizational structure project manager shares responsibility with the functional managers for assigning priorities and for directing the work of persons assigned to the project.
Matrix organizations allow functional departments to focus on their specific business competencies and allow projects to be staffed with specialists from throughout the organization.
The matrix-based organization is also the most flexible when dealing with changing business needs and priorities.
The main disadvantage is that the reporting relationships are complex. Some people might report to functional manager for whom little work is done, while actually working for one or more project managers. It becomes more important for staff members to develop strong time management skills to ensure that they fulfil the work expectations of multiple managers. This organization also requires communication and cooperation between multiple functional and project managers that all need time from the same resources.
Hope this should be okey. Any further review please.
Project Manager is responsible for the his project milestones and Program Manager is responsible for the overall milestone of the program and is concern as how slipping of 1 milestone can impact other projects and risk attached to same.
C - Program Manager seems better choice in this scenario
Sponsor mostly communicate with project managers for project progress and provide resources. I doubt he would set priorities for performing team member.
Confusion is between : Functional manager and program manager. Team member reports to functional manager.
I think - in this scenario project managers / program manager will negotiate with functional manager to set priorities and ultimately functional manager will set priorities for team member after productive negotiation.
More inputs are welcomed.
