Under what conditions would it be advisable to use a strong matrix instead of a dedicated team?


Strong Matrix vs. Dedicated Team

Both the strong matrix and dedicated team models have their unique advantages; deciding between the two often comes down to the specific needs of the project and the organization.

Using a Strong Matrix

A strong matrix is often advisable when:

  • The project needs diverse skills.This model allows for the utilization of specialized skills from different functional areas, which can provide great advantages for complex projects that require diverse expertise.
  • Internal resources are stretched thin. If an organization’s resources are spread thinly over multiple projects, a strong matrix allows for better resource allocation and utilization.
  • There’s a requirement for strong project management authority.In a strong matrix model, project managers have high authority and direct control over resources, beneficial for projects with tight timelines and complex deliverables.

Opting for a Dedicated Team

A dedicated team model is usually the preferred choice when:

  • The project has a long duration.Dedicated teams are excellent for long-term projects as they provide continuity and better understanding of the project requirements.
  • The project requires deep knowledge of the business domain.Since the team is fully focused on a single project, they can immerse themselves deeply into the domain, understanding its nuances thoroughly.
  • Innovation and creative solutions are required.A dedicated team has the bandwidth and focus to come up with innovative solutions specific to the project.
