The CAIRO matrix is a process management tool and basically a diagram which is used to describe the responsibilities of various roles in project tasks or deliverables. It's an abbreviation for:
Consulted (sometimes Counsel): Those whose opinions are required; and with whom there is two-way communication.
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.
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.
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
