“When the material to be comprehended involves a comparison of several topics along a number of dimensions, a matrix is the representation of choice.”

Creativity is just connecting things. When asking creative people how they did something, they feel guilty because they didn't really do it. They just saw something.
It seemed obvious to them after awhile.”
Arthur C. Aufderheide
All knowledge is connected is to all other knowledge.
The fun is in making the CONNECTIONS”
Scientrix pioneered the idea of using a matrix to help more people make the connections, solving complex problems in multiple dimensions. The matrix approach is used today by global consulting companies, top tier organizations and progressive individuals. It has even been integrated into the curriculum of St Gallen University in Switzerland, as part of their training on Strategy Execution.
It is a simple, yet powerful tool used in arts, architecture, music and games. In fact, if you look around you, you will see grids and matrices in many aspects of your everyday life.
The matrix creates a landscape overview, enables coordination and clear positioning, alignment, integration, connectivity and so much more. The matrix within a matrix strengthens systemic thinking – the idea of one system operating within another system.
Skeletons, architecture, layout grids, city plans, a spider web, a cell – everything works better and makes more sense when it is organized. The matrix and matrix-in-a-matrix system are ways to structure and solve complex problems. One matrix can include more matrices, which can include yet finer matrices, without limits, while sustaining causal relationships.
Get an introduction into multi-dimensional thinking, with the matrix being a way to make connections across multiple dimensions. The example focuses on how to align a team with a matrix.
