When there is a lack of understanding of the roles and responsibilities of your team members there is usually confusion, inefficiencies, and conflict. Here is a team exercise to shine the light on who is doing what and how the roles of your team intersect. The larger the team, the more time and space you will need.
Roles are generally defined as the positions that each person on a team assumes — for example on a product team you might have a Product Manager role, a Product Designer role, etc.
Responsibilities are the specific tasks or duties that team members are expected to carry out as part of their role.
Team Roles and Responsibilities Template is an activity to document the roles and responsibilities of those involved in a project.
Use this process to assign roles and responsibilities to members of your change/project team and to ensure that the team as a whole can proceed on a firm footing.
