Select and Manage the Roles for Your Enablement Project

In our previous units, you learned about the critical importance of establishing well-defined roles and responsibilities for the timely and cost-effective completion of enablement activities.

An enablement team's size and structure varies depending on the specific project. To ensure successful enablement, take time to clearly define each team member's roles, responsibilities, and accountabilities, as well as the skills they require and how many people are needed. Then, determine a cohesive team structure.

To learn more about the process of managing the various enablement roles, play the following video.

Now, It´s Your Turn!

Take 20 minutes to think about your enablement project and carry out the following steps:

  1. Project evaluation:

    Think about how the scope and complexity of your enablement project affects the number and types of needed roles.

  2. Role Identification and number of positions:
    • Identify the roles that you need for your enablement project.
    • For each role, briefly describe the specific expertise and skills required.
    • Consider whether you have all the necessary roles in-house or whether you also need external resources.
  3. Role Definition and responsibilities:
    • Create a clear and concise role description for your roles, including the main responsibilities and key deliverables.
    • Assign the appropriate responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed (RACI) values to your roles, indicating who is accountable for what tasks, deliverables, and decisions.
  4. Budget:

    Check the enablement team's allocated budget for resources. Is it enough? If it isn’t, discuss it with your project manager.

In addition, consider the following aspects of your enablement project:

  • List other factors and issues to consider when selecting your enablement project's roles and responsibilities.
  • Explain why these factors or issues are important and how they can impact your enablement project's success.
  • Discuss the potential consequences of role duplication or lack of clarity in a team and your enablement project.
