How did you settle on your Responsibility Assignment Matrix?

BillPMBillPM Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 131 admin

First off, we have found in our careers that often the #1 thing holding back a high performing team is lack of clarity when it comes to the breakdown of Roles and Responsibilities. To that end, we knew from the start that we need to have a Responsibility Matrix as one of the foundational elements of the product.

We started with an analysis of 17 different Responsibility Matrices looking for the commonalities across 3 different domains; Activity Management, Organizational Design, and Decision Management.

The four roles that were common across 10 or more of the matrices were; Accountable, Responsible, Consulted, and Informed.

That being said, depending on demand, we may add ability to support additional Assignment Matrices through a configurable setting.

In support of our decision to have a Responsibility Matrix as a foundational element I have included below links to a couple of articles as well as the Wiki for Responsibility Matrix.
