BUS 623 - Influencing Across a Matrix Culture

Course Name: BUS 623 - Influencing Across a Matrix Culture

Course Description
The business environment of today is characterized by teams collaborating across multiple business units to execute corporate strategy. More often than not, these teams are comprised of multi-disciplinary resources spread out across the organization, time zones, and even continents. These conditions invariably lead to uncertainty, ambiguity, and volatility. This seminar is designed to help front line leaders work and build influence in matrix-style organizations and teams. Building influence enhances power within an organization and helps teams work more effectively. The more influential you are as a leader, the more respected and appreciated you will become.

Course Details
By completion of this course, successful students will be able to:
• Identity and have a clear understanding of the character traits necessary to influence others
• Examine how teams work in a matrix environment and how leaders must learn to manage and influence down, up and across the organization
• Analyze the concept of project retrospective, how to leverage team wisdom to discover leading practices and improvements for upcoming projects
