That\’s Sudhakar and Anita in the team meeting. I believe in Tight matrix and have seen it working so well. This is something I learnt in my PMP and it states that when a team sits next to each other – work goes very well and teh team strength is high. On the other hand when individual members sit apart or in different countries – then the work gets affected and is not very optimal and the team strength is also low.
I personally try to ensure that all of the team members of a particular team sit as close to each other as possible. Sometimes I get them to realign – even by 1 seat next to each other. At times there has been resistance (stiff resistance ) but mostly things have moved smoothly.
