A RACI chart is a type of responsibility assignment matrix which helps in stakeholder identification of roles and responsibilities. RACI charts help you ensure that every task has an owner and that they know they are…because if more than one person is accountable for a task…neither are. Think of RACI as a “buck stops here” tool.
To build a RACI chart follow these steps:
- Identify the activities
- Identify the functional roles
- Assign the RACI codes
- Identify any gaps or overlaps – for example, where there are two As or no Rs
- Distribute the chart, incorporate feedback
- Reach agreement with all involved stakeholders
- Go forth and conquer!
