Responsible and Accountable

Postby Gul Thu Oct 05, 2017 11:51 am

Responsible: Responsible means the person(s) assigned is/are the ones to carry out and finish the task
There can be more than one people responsible for an activity/task

Accountable: Accountable means the person assigned is Accountability CANNOT be shared, meaning that there is only ONE individual accountable for an activity/task.

Can be one individual Responsible and accountable for particular activity/ task..?
someone could be Accountable and responsible for more than one activity in a project..?
