Performing in the Matrix
Arnoud understands how work gets done in large functional organisations, ie. process ownership vs line accountability.

A shared ambition clarifies to everyone what the team stands for and where it’s heading to. It’s the point on the horizon making people feel connected and feel responsible. Guided by a shared ambition the priorities are clear, the goals will focus and motivation is for granted.
A true annual plan is an improvement plan. Which initiatives will bring us closer to our ambitions? Achieving the goals is the focus. Growing as a team and as individual professionals is the way to go. A true annual plan breathes the flavours of a healthy performance climate: what are we going to do to further improve?
Plan reviews reflect the performance climate in which a team operates. How focused and sharp is the team when reviewing their own performance? Learning is key. ‘What’ and ‘why’ are more important than ‘who’. The way issues are examined and discussed is as important as the issue itself. And finally, the future is more exciting than the past.
