From Tall to Matrix: Redefining Organizational Structures
Johnson McPhail, Christine
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v48 n4 p55-62 2016
This article examines traditional organizational structures of community colleges and how traditional hierarchical structures influence delivery of programs and services. The point is to reveal ways in which community colleges can change organizational structures to more effectively implement key reform and student success efforts through a "matrix" approach. A matrix structure reduces program coordination difficulties by bringing cross-functional employees together to concentrate everyone's attention on the requirements of a particular project.
