This template is designed to assist an organization in assigning decision-making authority to appropriate parties in order to:
- Allow for the best decisions to be made
- Make management processes more efficient
- Contain the level of risk associated with each decision
This document is not intended to serve as a “blame map” when things go wrong, rather a guideline to help all parties understand the general rules of engagement.
What will doing this get you?
This template helps you have a productive discussion with your project sponsor and agree on the types of decisions you can make and the ones that need to be escalated.
