Inverted Matrix

Posted on January 22, 2010 by


Project Managers are usually familiar with the Project Management Institute’s categorization of organizations as outlined in the PMBOK®. There are functional, strong matrix, balanced matrix, weak matrix, projectized, and composite organizations. Another organizational structure term is the Inverted Matrix. This is actually more of a projectized type of organization that has specialists permanently employed to support projects. So when the project manager needs a certain specialist, that person may be conveniently located right down the hall.
