  1. A real-time example of matrix organization is the world-recognized Dutch origin multinational organization Phillips which in the year 1970 set up the matrix organization structure in its company. The managers now had to report to both the product division and geographical managers. Several other organizations that have implemented matrix organizational structure are Texas Instruments and Hughes Aircraft.
    Suppose you are working as an engineer in a functional department and your company receives a project where they need an engineer for a few days. You might then be assigned to that project also, and now you will have to report to two sets of bosses even if it is for a shorter time duration. This infrastructure where an employee will have to work under one or more leader is matrix structure.
    This is the best example I found for matrix management.
