Summary This book gives insight into the minds of a group of 55 project, program, and portfolio managers who have worked in a matrix environment. It presents lessons learned from both their successes and failures. With this book, you will learn how to: prepare for a leadership role in a matrix environment; understand the organization's structure and identify the hidden key players of a team; use volunteer-based roles to gain influence in the organization; build a coalition of key individuals, including decision makers, respected employees, and subject matter experts; understand the perception of leadership styles by followers and position oneself so others are more willing to cooperate and comply with requests. The goal of this text is to show a clear path for project, program, and portfolio managers to lead others within a matrix environment regardless of the industry or complexity. -- Edited summary from book.
