Authorities and Responsibilities Matrices


Authorities and Responsibilities
Matrices are considered important to organizations due to their role in
identifying and documenting decisions that are usually taken on the
organizational level, in addition to specifying positions participating in the
decision-making process and highlighting their respective roles. This supports
the concepts of accountability as means for providing the necessary empowerment
for employees and inducing flexibility into the work environment
