system accountability (n.)
Origincommunity term

System accountability describes the responsibility systems or members take or are assigned for the actions of their headmates. This can mean several things, including:

  • taking collective accountability for irresponsible behaviour
  • taking/expecting collective responsibility for ensuring that all members act within certain boundaries (such as system rules)
  • taking/assigning collective blame for the actions of one headmate onto other headmates or the collective

Due to the varied possible interpretations, different kinds of system accountability (possibly referred to by the same words) are adopted or rejected by sections of the community or individual systems or headmates.
