Matrix and Bureaucratic Organizations are Large

Both of these organizations are typically - though not necessarily - large.



Both Matrix and Bureaucratic Organisations are hierarchical and can not provide an open environment for efficiency and productivity.


Supportive for Blaming Behavior

Both of these organizations help everybody even managers to blame others for their own lack of performance and also help to offer reasons why someone couldn´t take responsibility for a change or an improvement.

Matrix Management

The concept or fundamental principle underlying matrix management does not only fly in the face of Fayol's "Unity of Command" but goes all the way back to the Old Testament talking about "man being able to serve only one master, and serve him well" Matt 6:24. I think one other clarification should be considered as well. Traditionally, matrix management is not only found where functional organizations integrate with product organizations, but also when functional organizations integrate with project centric organizations. I think there should be a link between matrix management and project management groups. BR, Dr. PDG, Jakarta
