Accountability is the process where an individual or group mutually submits what they are doing to the guidance and direction of others for the purpose of reaching a common goal. Accountability is established by mutually agreed limits and expectations based on truthful and complete understanding of the problems and rewards.
The process involves first understanding the goals, then setting mutually agreed responsibilities and mutually agreed ways of reporting. Finally, consequences for failure need to be defined.
