About the accountability matrix

Tamarack Institute Co-CEO Liz Weaver has designed a collaborative tool for building accountability matrices, to support your community change work. Tamarack believes in a co-development approach where diverse partners can actively contribute to shaping their accountability matrix. This enables deeper engagement, leading to greater success in achieving common community goals.

There is increased pressure on organizations to build collaborative approaches to deliver shared services or move the needle on complex issues. Collaborations often benefit from a more defined approach to their governance and leadership processes. This tool will help collaborations and the leaders engaged around collaborative tables to clearly define roles and to identify the decision and reporting relationships between different roles. The goal of this tool is to provide a framing for collaborations to consider and to support them in understanding and deploying their governance structure more effectively.

How the accountability matrix guide helps

By using this tool, you will be supported in achieving the following outcomes:

  • Define different collaboration roles 
  • Identify the relationships and accountabilities between the different roles 
  • Describe the decision-making approach for each role
