  1. Answer:

    The potential advantages of matrix structures include:

    • Better communication and cooperation across functions.

    • Improved decision making; problem solving takes place at the team level where the best information is available.

    • Increased flexibility in adding, removing, or changing operations to meet changing demands.

    • Better customer service; there is always a program, product, or project manager informed and available to answer questions.

    • Better performance accountability through the program, product, or project managers.

    • Improved strategic management; top managers are freed from lower-level problem solving to focus time on more strategic issues.
