TRAINING
Managing Project Teams in Matrix Structures
1
Course Description
Most projects form their teams of resources that belong to business units doing some other day-to-day work, with managers of their own. Engineers, technicians, BA-s, customer management, logistics and many others – share their time between yours and other projects, their own BAU plans and other stuff.

This is a matrix structure which creates some unique challenges for PM-s as opposed to managing contractors or doing projects in your functional team.

- How to integrate your project activities into your team's busy BAU and other projects mix?
- How to engage and motivate your Project team for your project success given their other work priorities?
- What responsibilities can you safely delegate and when?
- How to establish reliable communications that will keep risks identified and issues raised in a timely manner?

The course provides participants with a set of tools and recognised best practices as well as tips and tricks on how to make projects work in corporate environments where prioritisation and struggle for resources is a never-ending battle.
