Management teams in complex companies lead matrix, virtual, international and cross-cultural organizations.

In operating as a team in such a complex environment, managers face some common challenges including:

  • What is our unique contribution as a team – rather than just the sum of our individual roles?
  • What is the right level of control for our business?
  • What is relevant to discuss during our meetings and reviews?

Management teams in complex companies can fall into some common traps in managing these challenges – a tendency to discuss topics of relevance only to a few team members, a tendency to increase control over time and to be sucked into inappropriate levels of detail.

How they handle these challenges sets the tone for the wider organization and can have a huge impact on organizational performance.
