It fell out of favor in the 1990s, but has since resurfaced, as the pressure to innovate on ever-faster schedules encourages experimentation in organizational design. Marvin Gottlieb, who has studied and applied the principles of matrix management for over 25 years, takes us on a tour of this phenomenon--its evolution, current practices, and future applications.
