There are three scenarios that could occur: (1) the need for continuous clearance of all matters with the leadership, (2) increase of conflict caused by persistent issues that work up the multiple levels of command, and (3) some leaders feeling like every decision must be correct, or one-sided, and if not they will feel ineffective as a leader within the matrix organization, thus affecting communication.[ CITATION Stu79 \l 1033 ].When after looking at the disadvantages and problems with communication in the matrix reporting organizations, it may appear that the problems remain undefeatable. How will the leadership get their Matrix reporting complexed organization to communicate efficiently? It will be contingent on the tasks of the staff involved. Leadership must give authentic provision to the matrix reporting, including clear, direct communication. The process should be clearly defined toall responsible leadership involved.[ CITATION Stu79 \l 1033 ]. The measurement of effectiveness will be monitored and assessed by evaluating the progress of initiatives with best practice, assessing the clinical staff individually with a survey monkey questionnaire ensuring confidentiality. This implementation of change, assessment and evaluation will need to take place over time. Informing staff of the changes, supporting staff withthe understanding of Matrix reporting, and utilizing the principles of communicating to Improve Quality strategy. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality supports communication within the healthcare setting with improving quality and safety through the communication with patients, families, and clinicians[ CITATION Qua \l 1033 ].

At Eskenazi there is a multiple management level of reporting structure and for a balance to develop between the levels, there needs to be a way to assess and minimize the potential power struggles that may exist. Having full support of the senior leadership team will be key in this process of communicating. The matrix organizational form is only desirable if there is a real need for its added complexity. Not only is it not for everyone, but it cannot be guaranteed to work. It will only workif the entire organization, from top leadership to the clinical personnel, are thoroughly “sold” on the matrix concept. There are many reasons why the matrix will not work, but failure to lay the groundwork and fully prepare the organization through communication is the principle reason forfailure. The matrix will function and result in very improved communication productivity if leadership gives its unwavering support and if functional clinical management and staff accept

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
