When doing a little research it seems there is a subtle difference between a weak matrix and functional organization.
Can anybody give me a clear difference between them?

Please and thank you.

In functional you have PM coordinators with zero control over project decisions while in a weak matrix you may have a Project Manager title with some project ability making decisions but not much.

Thx
