RACI model is a powerful tool utilized to define roles and responsibilities
The RACI model is a powerful tool utilized to define roles and responsibilities. In general, you match up roles and responsibilities with processes. The tool is extremely useful when rolling out a new change management program, or just uncovering the processes that make your organization function and identifying the participation in those processes. First let’s discuss what RACI stands for:
R–Responsible-The buck stops here. Whoever is responsible needs to make sure that the process works as planned. The R owns the process/problem or project.
A–Accountable-This is the person who is delegated the task of completing the Activity. They support the person who owns the R.
C–Consult-This person usually have in depth knowledge of the process in question and all major decisions need signed off by this individual.
I–Inform-The people who need informed of activity taken, but not necessarily consulted.
Each individual who is involved in a process is either identified as an R, A, C, or I. No two individuals in one process should both have the R.
