Roles and Responsibilities

The roles and responsibilities inside an organization should be understood and employed everywhere, but somehow we have managed to get it wrong in so many cases it’s astonishing. I’ll say no more about it, and just jump to doing a quick recap on the topic as well as offer a free template for you to download.

Roles and Responsibilities Overview

For you to successfully manage your staff, it is important to provide them with a clear definition of their:

  • role
  • function
  • responsibilities

When you start defining roles and responsibilities, you may need to create a list for:

  • staff members
  • tasks
  • roles within the business

One you defined each role and responsibilities you can record that information in a job description or in a project roles and responsibilities template, and start assigning staff members. The job description can be formal or informal, however it is important that it captures the key information. It can be used to assign roles and responsibilities, as well as measure performance by setting KPI’s against tasks and requirements.

With all the roles defined you can go a step further and create an organization/project chart.

This will help define relationships between:

  • departments
  • divisions
  • projects
  • teams
  • people

It defines reporting structures and lines of authority and responsibility, providing a picture of how the organization functions.

Failing to define roles and responsibilities can create tension, inefficiency, and conflicts within you business.

Mistakes and omissions can also occur where people are unsure of what is required of them, therefore creating inefficiencies which cost time and money.

Remember that making use of a predefined project roles and responsibilities template can increase your productivity and help avoid future conflicts and misunderstandings.
