Introduction

The importance of roles, responsibilities, and other processes

This module outlines the roles, responsibilities, and other processes to successfully integrate accessibility throughout a project’s lifecycle. The strategies presented in this module will help directors, program managers, and other team members not only address urgent accessibility remediation in projects, but help establish ways that accessibility can be incorporated, managed, and sustained for future projects from start to finish.

Summary

Accessibility is an ongoing process that takes effort throughout the organization. Establishing accessibility governance and management will help organizations avoid the expensive and legal consequences of addressing accessibility on an as-needed basis; and it will help promote accessibility awareness within the organization.

Directors and program managers have a responsibility to manage, govern, and enforce accessibility standards and best practices among their teams; while designers, engineers, and developers have a responsibility to develop projects based on those accessibility standards and best practices.

An organization’s accessibility commitment should not just be about developing good accessible code, rather it should be about delivering the best possible experiences to customers. Everyone plays a key role in making sure the organization succeeds in that effort.
