The Responsibility is a charge assigned to a unique actor to signify its accountabilities concerning a unique business task (Feltus). The responsibility of an agent is defined as the subset of tasks allocated to him by a manager and it is shown that rent seeking considerations lead the manager to allocate the few tasks to the agent (Prendergast). For (Sliwka), the responsibility exists when a superior holds a certain subordinate responsible for a task, when he announces his beliefs that this subordinate contributes most to this task.
