Delegate responsibility for a domain to individuals.
A role is a simple way for an organization (or team) to delegate recurring tasks or a specific area of work and decision-making to one of its members.
- people can take responsibility for more than one role
- instead of formally setting up a new team, it’s sometimes simpler to just share one role between several people
- role keepers are selected by consent and for a limited term
- peers support one another to develop in the roles they keep
Note: In S3, guidelines, processes or protocols created by individuals in roles are treated as agreements.
