I am confused about differentiating between the matrix and functions structure of the organization.
Functional structure is like an upside down tree.
As you move up from the lowest level staff member each person has only one superior/manager/boss and eventually you get to the board and the CEO.
Matrix structure is like a table with rows and columns. The top row and left most column represent the managers or people you report to.
So in a project, an engineer might report to both an engineering technical manager and also to the manager of the whole project.
This is covered, with diagrams in Chapter 1 of our notes.
