A functional manager holds a celebration for the project team to reward them for a job well done that led to the achieved completion of a major project. It was clear to the project manager that the team was relaxed and enjoying themselves, with some sharing about upcoming vacation plans. What type of organizational model does the project team likely work within?

A Weak matrix

Teams working in a weak matrix organization tend to experience the least amount of stress during the Closing processes. This is because, in a weak matrix organization, the functional manager assigns all tasks (project-related tasks as well) so the team members have a job to return to once the project is completed and there’s no change in reporting structure.
