I recently purchased the APMP study guide and am on Section 2.1: Organisation Structures.

The first question at the bottom of p35 has me stumped:
"Explain three examples of a matrix organisation when used in a project environment."

Can anyone explain what is meant by "examples" in this context? The question seems rather open ended - I'm assuming it doesn't mean real world examples, as on p263 it is stated that "examples are not explicitly requested in the question".

Should the question in fact read something along the lines of "Explain three strengths/weaknesses of a matrix organisation when used in a project environment"?

Perhaps I'm overthinking this one! Hope it doesn't crop up in the exam :)
