Roles and Accountabilities Game

  • Jeff Dalton


The purpose of the “Roles and Accountabilities” game is to build a common understanding of team roles and accountabilities, and to encourage self-subscription to accountabilities. This game identifies key roles and accountabilities on index cards, then has the team align the accountabilities to each role. While aligning accountabilities, the team can work through ambiguous or contentious accountabilities, and the scrum master may assist by helping team members reach the best conclusion. This game may be applied to different types of teams in an organization where clarity and common understanding are needed. At the conclusion of the game, team members can self-subscribe to roles, and all the accountabilities for each role that have been defined.
