Could you please explain what the following in bold mean in easy English?

When managing stakeholders, we should not lose sight of the basic tools used to manage other parts of the project. Simple tools like an action log and regular follow-up should be used. Even stakeholders who initially squirm under this level of accountability will often come around to appreciate it. If nothing else, the action log provides us a built-in reason for contacting our stakeholders. Be sure to include owners for each action item and follow-up dates.

Thank you.

An action log = a record of actions to be carried out.

regular follow-up = there will be regular reassessment of whether the actions have been carried out, and if not, why not.

I see. Thank you.

I forgot asking one more question.
In the last sentence "Be sure to include owners for each action item and regular follow-up dates," what does "owners" mean? Does it refer to "people who are responsible for carrying out each action item?"
