Roles and responsibilities

Roles and Responsibilities provide input to defining the project organisation structure and outline the expectations of people filling each of the project roles.

This information will ensure that the right people are in place with the authority, responsibility and knowledge to make decisions on project matters and to provide control over the project in a timely manner.

Organisation of roles and responsibilities

The following roles explain the overall responsibilities and tasks of each member of the project management team. These roles and their relationship to the overall organisational management structure need to be agreed for each project, taking into account the type, nature and scale of the project.

Tailoring may include combining roles or dividing a role between two or more people. The important thing to remember is that all the responsibilities must be held by someone, whatever the complexity of the project. Responsibilities may be moved from one role to another, but should never be excluded.
