Succeeding in a Matrix Environment
Matrix organizations have become the norm, particularly as companies have had to become flatter and leaner. But what makes a matrix organization succeed? Most companies focus on it from a structure perspective, but few recognize the complexities on the human side.
Carmen Nemecek, a Consulting Director with The Ken Blanchard Companies, will provide a fast-paced overview, exploring new ways to thrive in a matrix environment and answering key questions like:
• Influencing without authority -- with fewer hierarchical reporting structures, what's the best way to advance my point of view?
• Understanding differences -- how do I become better at realizing my own needs and preferences, as well as reading the patterns of others?
• Managing conflict -- how can I embrace and harness the conflict that naturally and frequently occurs?
• How and who makes decisions -- in a landscape where decision rights aren't clear, what role can/should I play?
Carmen will then facilitate a panel discussion on this topic, diving into real-life examples with some of the region's top leaders, including:
Stacia Andersen, SVP of Home Merchandising, Target
Ann Simonds, SVP, President of the Mill City Division (Betty Crocker Baking, Pillsbury Refrigerated), General Mills
Tom Dixon, VP, Pizza Marketing, Schwan's Consumer Brands, Inc.
You won't want to miss this thought provoking discussion and the opportunity to network with some of the best minds in the business.
