Many readers of the IOD (Northern Ireland) magazine have been on management courses, studied for MBAs, or otherwise been introduced to the concept of the management matrix. While this obviously varies from organisation to organisation and can be multi-dimensional, the basic premise is that individuals, project teams, or other components of a business have multiple reporting lines or responsibilities.
