How to Use a Responsibility Assignment Matrix Template

Creating a Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM) is a great way to ensure that all of your team's tasks are organized and tracked. Follow these steps to make sure your RAM is effective:

1. Identify the tasks and activities

The first step is to identify all of the tasks and activities that need to be completed. You should also consider any potential risks associated with each task.

Create tasks in ClickUp to document all tasks and potential risks.

2. Assign roles & responsibilities

Once you’ve identified the tasks, it’s time to assign roles and responsibilities. Assign a person to each task, and make sure they understand the scope of their job. You may also want to assign a backup in case the original assignee is unavailable.

Create custom fields in ClickUp to assign each task to a team member and a backup.

3. Create the RAM

Once all of the tasks and roles are identified, it’s time to create the RAM. This is a table that lists all the tasks, along with the roles and responsibilities associated with each of them.

Use the Table view in ClickUp to create your RAM.

4. Review & revise

It’s important to review your RAM regularly and make changes as needed. When tasks and roles change, be sure to update the RAM accordingly.

Set a recurring task in ClickUp to review and revise your RAM as needed.
