In our experience there are some predictable problems in working in a matrix organization structure – some of these are unfairly blamed on the matrix structure (it makes an easy scapegoat) and some are a function of working in such a complex environment.

What are the most difficult 3 issues for you personally in your matrix – pick 3 from the list in the poll at the side of the page (you may need to scroll down), if your answer is “other” please leave a comment and we can add popular ones to the list of questions.

I will add some content about the top issues as the blog and debate develops – I would like to hear your views too.

Please note: poll now closed.
