Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM)
The Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) is used to illustrate the connections between work that needs to be done and project team members. Following are RAM samples with instructions. The first example is a consolidated RAM; the second example is a RAM by phase.
Projects may develop a project-specific tool as long as it captures the basic information contained in this RAM example.
Instructions for completing the RAM
1) Add or Delete project roles as applicable to your project
2) Insert key tasks and deliverables by phase
3) A working spreadsheet will be available in the Documents List on the BPWeb.
4) For each task select the appropriate assignment based on the resources involvement in that particular task. (A legend is provided in cell A3)
