Whether you like Matrix Organizations or not (we don't), the fact is, many of us manage within one. If you've done it for a while, you've probably adopted the Matrix Review Cynicism syndrome. What's that, you say? Well, if you've ever thought about asking for performance review input from someone else, and then said, "NAAH - they'll just blow me off," then you've adopted it.

The fact is, in far too many places, even IF your company requires the dotted line manager to add input, either no input is forthcoming, or what you get is not very helpful. Oh, and PLEASE don't tell us you wanted example of behavior with their reply. ;-)

In this cast, we talk about what to do when you have to give a review to one of your directs when you live in The Matrix.

  • How do I get information to create a performance review in a matrix?
