Cross-Function Or Project Team Matrix: Invest In Agreemtent.

In a cross-functional or project team matrix, Investing in agreement is here, as most of the decisions will be made as a team. Have a well laid-out, replicable process for making decisions and set parameters on how long you will strive for consensus and what happens when you can’t reach consensus. Also, make very sure that the people on your teams are “deputized.” Make sure they can make decisions for the functions they represent. If they are unable to make decisions and have to continually go back to their function for validation, you have the wrong person on the team or their functional boss/team is not clear on what their role is on your team.
