Matrix management at the top – two CEOs
In previous posts we have mentioned that in a matrix organization structure it is common for very senior managers to underestimate the impact of the matrix on management. The reason for this is that, at the top of the matrix, relatively little changes – everyone still works for you!
I found this interesting article about a 2 CEO structure at Wipro, a $4Bn Indian software services organization. The article proposes that there are some special corporate and national cultural aspects that may help make this particular example of a matrix organization structure work.
It also mentions previous experiments with this form such as Unilever.
Take a look – have you ever experienced a two-CEO structure, did it help with matrix management or make the matrix structure even harder to operate – how did it work?
