Let's define a matrix structure. A matrix structure is a framework for the operation of a business depicting its leadership, its operational management and its rank and file employees. It defines the channels of communication and the levels of responsibility within a business. It provides us with the rules shall we say of who talks to who and who makes the decisions above a certain rank. For instance in the military, a private wouldn't go talk to a general, he'd have a path for his communications to talk to his sergeant and his sergeant would talk to the lieutenant and the lieutenant would talk to the colonel and the colonel would talk to the general thus providing an efficient way to get things done within the business.
