Working in a matrix organization
Working in close collaboration, InContext and GSK developed a tailor-made program, the company simulation called LifeSaver. The aim of LifeSaver is to forge the vaccine development teams into a unit operating within the larger GSK organization.
Setting up this process raised important questions: how do the formal communication lines relate to informal contacts / decision making? How do you align the personal goals of team members and the team goals with organizational goals? How do you promote an enterprise-oriented mindset? How do you find a balance between personal leadership and the willingness to carry out tasks?
