Matrix Organization Reporting System

Postby nazrulq Thu Dec 21, 2017 3:13 am

Q. In concern about Matrix organization (NOT Mentioned What Type) where there is dual reporting system is subjected! Who is ultimately responsible for maintaining reporting relationship:


1. Project Manager
2. Functional Manager
3. Functional and Project Manager
4. Project Sponsor.

My question is that Project Manager solely responsible or Project Manager and Functional Manager Combinedly!
It is understandable for weak and balanced matrix Functional and Mixed Responsibility is Suggested but for the Strong Matrix, Project Manager is solely responsible.
The question does n't specify clearly which type of Matrix Organization. For that type of question what would be the best choice!

Can Saket or Manish Explain Please!

If I remember correctly, from few of Saket's Webinars ...... if the question doesn't carry any specific Information regarding org structure, it is to be considered as MATRIX (balanced).
