FAQs

Roles are the job titles and operational occupations that different team members inhabit. Examples of roles are secretary, project manager, and consultant.

Responsibilities are the tasks and requirements associated with different roles. For example, a project manager’s responsibilities may include:

- Checking in with each team member periodically to offer assistance

- Ensuring that project activities and progress stay on schedule

- Assembling different deliverables of the project into a whole

- Communicating with stakeholders across the organization

To list your organizational roles and responsibilities, you have to know what they are. If you’re nailing down work divisions for an upcoming project, gather your entire team to divvy up project roles and responsibilities as a group.

If you’re listing your own roles and responsibilities (perhaps on a resume), consider carefully what tasks you actually performed (whether or not they were “assigned” to you, or were part of your official job description).

Creating a roles and responsibilities diagram is easy—especially if you build one on FigJam’s team roles and responsibilities template. Simply open the template, work on it together, and share your creation company-wide.

To make the roles and responsibilities example your own, you’ll just fill out a table with different roles alongside explanations of their responsibilities. Here’s a pared-down, step-by-step breakdown:

1. Write down each team or role.

2. Jot down a specific task that each role is responsible for in however much detail suits your organization’s needs.

3. Assign each role and responsibility to a team or employee.
