RACI (or sometimes RASCI) is a responsibility assignment matrix and an acronym for responsible, accountable, (supportive), consulted, and informed.
A RACI model identifies:
- Who is responsible for completing the task or making the decision
- Who is accountable for the project overall or must review and sign off on deliverables and decisions
- Who needs to be supportive and consulted to provide input on a particular item or task
- Who needs to be kept informed on project progress and completion
This template can help you go beyond the more common assignment model where you assign a project or task to a team member. This setup provides a more in-depth framework with multiple team members involved with a different level of responsibility.
This clarity of who does what is provided by the assignee field that is used for the Responsible in RACI and the user type custom fields for Accountable, Consulted, and Informed.
The Project RACI template also includes two dashboards for a quick glance at who’s responsible for what for managers (Project Manager View dashboard), and for team members (Team Member View dashboard).
In addition to that, there’s a pre-made report - RACI Team View - that you can use for progress tracking.
