What this is

Formats and example contents for a team Responsibility Matrix, used to document and communicate the type of involvement of each team member and/or different functional groups and the ownership of specific tasks.


Why it's useful

Responsibility for project tasks, decisions, and deliverables needs to be clearly understood and communicated. Various team members need to be involved in important ways. Assignment of each task to a specific owner is critical in enabling the best performance within the project team. Co-ownership can create ambiguity, which dilutes accountability.

While your full project schedule eventually will likely have resource names assigned to each task, responsibility assignments are crucial well before the time when you can reasonably have created a full schedule. The Responsibility Matrix provides an easy-to-scan condensed format to record important team member responsibilities from the beginning. It also helps ensure that the responsibility and involvement for "hidden" items (items that might not show up explicitly in your schedule) - such as key review attendance or key decisions - are explicitly documented as well.
