Roles & Responsibilities for Product Teams

The board helps agile teams to align on roles and responsibilities by mapping out status quo and defining a target of how we see each other.

How to use the Roles & Responsibilities template

  1. Teams pick responsibilities and sort them by role (Status Quo)

  2. Teams analyze and mark opportunities and risks of the current distribution

  3. Teams map out their desired state of the roles & responsibility distribution (each team on their own)

  4. Merge the cards based on similarity. Align on a desired state.

  5. Question to the team: What can we do already in the next sprint to get one step closer to the desired state?

PS: Feel free to add new roles like VP Product or Director UX to clarify expectations toward those roles.

You're welcome to change or add responsibilities. Please keep in mind to not overcomplicate this exercise.

Enjoy mapping and aligning on roles and responsibilities!
