Global Integration offers tailored courses rather than open access, but anyone in the UK looking for a one day workshop at a reasonable rate (£250) may be interested in the one day matrix organization workshop being offered by Ashridge Business School, at which Global Integration’s CEO, Kevan Hall, will be leading the afternoon session.
The matrix is a reality for most large companies now: in global organizations people work across geographies and multiple product sets. Tension points abound and even organizations structured into simple business units have central functions that impose policies and services on decentralised units.
This workshop (June 19, 2012) will explore different forms of matrix structure, why they exist and how managers within these structures can be effective.
Kevan is joining Andrew Campbell , Director of Ashridge Strategic Management Centre, programme director of Advanced Organization Design and author of ‘Designing Effective Organizations’ and numerous articles and books on organization and strategy.
Campbell is running the morning session, focussing on functions, Hall’s afternoon session will focus on management.
The workshop is likely to appeal to:
– managers working within a matrix organization, leading a matrix organization or helping design or develop matrix organizations
– human resources professionals: business partners, OD specialists or organization consultants
– management consultants, strategic planners and business managers in complex organizations.
