Exhibit 1: Collaborative Matrix Model
Collaboration is defined as the act of working together to achieve a common goal. Leading teams in a collaborative matrix assists individuals in engaging, progressing through the stages of team development in a high performing manner, finding solutions, and accomplishing tasks.
Seven basic elements of collaborative matrix model
What are the seven basic elements of the Collaborative Matrix Model for organizations?
According to our understanding, an organization consists of seven fundamental elements: a human element, a process element, a knowledge element, a customer resource element, a project event element, a material element, and a financial element.
Furthermore, none of these seven elements exist in isolation or as silos; they are highly correlated and correspond with each other. These elements can be moved between departments within the organization.
An accountable system is more likely to encourage collaboration over competition, resulting in a healthy work culture.
How does the collaborative matrix model work?
The Collaborative Matrix Model is a solution for Enterprise Information Management (EIM) that incorporates the use of enterprise data mesh architecture. Enterprise data mesh architecture enables agility, performance, and self-service data access, allowing each organizational unit to achieve stereo-matching or multi-threading management on a single platform.
Additionally, when a user locates an information point in the system, they gain access to the information associated with that specific information point.
For example, if you search for a salesperson within the organization, you will have access to additional information stored in the database:
- Personal financial information (salaries, benefits, costs, expenses)
- Customers they manage
- Documentation history
- Projects participated in
- Company assets in use
- Work arrangements, and more
This information is easily accessible via the information node on the employee’s “profile card” displayed in a web-based connection.
