TASC asks if someone has what they need to be accountable and successful.

  • Task: Who owns it?
  • Authority: Do they have it enough to be accountable?
  • Success: Are they set up with the necessary time, resources, clarity?
  • Checklist: Have the particulars of accomplishment been defined?


Helps avoid failed expectations. Fundamental to accountability is clarity.
