What RACI Charting Does

RACI charting accelerates role clarification, accomplishing in a few hours what might take months or years if things are left to “work themselves out.”

The RACI Model explained
LetterNameDefinition
R Responsible The person who performs the work. There must be one “R” on every row, no more and no less. “R” is the only letter that must appear in each row.
A Accountable The person ultimately accountable for the work or decision being made. Use this letter where appropriate, but not to excess – only when a key decision or task is at hand. There can be from zero to one “A’s” in each row, but no more than one.
C Consulted Anyone who must be consulted with prior to a decision being made and/or the task being completed. There can be as many “C’s” as are appropriate in each row.
I Informed Anyone who must be informed when a decision is made or work is completed. There can be as many “I’s” as are appropriate in each row.
