    • Advantages
      • It can help to break down traditional departmental barriers, improving communication across the entire organisation
      • It can allow individuals to use particular skills in a variety of contexts
      • It avoids the needs for several departments to meet regularly so reduces costs and improves coordination
    • Disadvantages
      • Members of project teams may have divided loyalties, as they report to two or more line managers
      • There may not be a clear line of accountability for project teams, given the complex nature of matrix structures
