Event Overview
As noted by organizational leadership blogger Mark Hannum, a matrix structure is lean, flexible, and fast-moving. It is made up of experts who are able to collaborate on complex problems, make important decisions, and coordinate among multiple stakeholders.

Working and leading in a matrix environment can appear chaotic, but this chaos has distinct patterns and can be organized around larger goals and timelines by pulling the focus up from individual components. The chaos can appear worsened by team changes, program and course developments, technology needs, resource limitations, and changing priorities at a pace that is faster than we may feel ready to accommodate.

A panel of leaders from instructional design, virtual labs, and vendor licensing will discuss how they approach their work as they lead our course and program development efforts here at Southern New Hampshire University.  The panel will be facilitated by NERCOMP board member Dr. Candace Sleeman.

Learning Outcomes:
- Effectively manage resource costs and over-resource or swarm a problem, simultaneously
- Generate lots of small actions and changes to create organizational momentum
- Link small teams together to create larger outcomes

This session will not be recorded.

This session is for individuals employed by higher education institutions only. No vendors, please.
