Project management roles and responsibilities


When you are the only person participating in a project, then obviously there is no need to setting various PM roles and responsibilities as you are in charge of planning, doing and controlling project tasks. But when a group of people is involved in your project, then a detailed responsibility matrix will be required to identify roles and duties of group members. In this connection, you should properly define and assign duties, roles and responsibilities, so there will be no place for chaos and confusion in your project.

A project management responsibilities matrix is a detailed description of project roles and responsibilities to be assigned to people involved in your job. It is often a part of Project Chart document which is a graph representation of the project organizational structure containing references to names of stakeholders and their interest and concern in the project. A typical roles and responsibilities matrix includes a description of the next roles and responsibilities:

  • Project Manager Role: project manager is responsible for planning and implementing strategies and tactics and developing the overall project plan.
  • Team Member Role: team members are responsible for performing tasks and assignments while following schedules and meeting deadlines.
  • Team Leader Role: team leader is in charge of leading team members, controlling their performance and making decision within the project team.
  • Project Sponsor Role: a person, group or organization that has a financial concern in the project and often makes investments in project planning and implementation.
  • Project User Role: project user is a person, group or organization that "consumes" project results and participates in result testing and evaluation.
  • Quality Manager Role: quality manager or quality coordinator takes care of inspecting quality of the project and undertaking activities for quality assurance and quality control.
