Human Resources, Organizational Assessment.
¿Cómo puedo diferenciar "con precisión fina" entre "responsability" y "accountability"?
Explanation: The only thing I can tell you is that I am responsible for my actions (obviously, because I am the only one making them) but I am not accountable for them (I do not have to account for them, I don't have to explain them or justify them). I am responsible for what happened, and that's it.
YOu may want to translate it that "...son responsables por, pero no tienen que explicar, sus acciones" or something along those lines.
