How do you create a responsibility matrix? What are 4 examples of responsibilities?

There are several types of Responsibility Matrices. The most famous one is RACI and consist of the following 4 components:

  • Responsible: Those who do the work to achieve the task. There is typically one role with a participation type of responsible, although others can be delegated to assist
  • Accountable(also known as: Final Approving Authority or Approver): There can only be one person who is ultimately accountable for the correct and thorough completion of each task or deliverable. The Accountable is the person who must sign off (Approve) on the work that the Responsible provides. Therefore, the Responsible is accountable to him/her.
  • Consulted (sometimes Counsel): Those whose opinions are required; and with whom there is two-way communication.
  • Informed: those who are kept up-to-date about the decisions on the development, achievements of the task or deliverable; this is only one-way communication.
