Update roles and responsibilities This step has two parts

First, if any new role has been identified, then update the stakeholder-role description table (first mentioned in the project definition document) with the name of the required role and the specific responsibilities that role has. Once specific individuals are assigned to roles, the project role responsibility chart can be updated to reflect role assignments. An example of a partial project role responsibility chart is presented in Figure 5.4.
