RACI Teams


28th Apr'20

RACI stands for Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed. Each letter in the acronym represents a level of task responsibility.


What is a RACI chart?

A RACI chart is a simple matrix used to assign roles and responsibilities for each task, milestone, or decision on a project. By clearly mapping out which roles are involved in each project task and at which level, you can eliminate confusion and answer the age-old project question, Who’s doing what?

Key responsibility roles in RACI model:


Responsible: Doing The Task

This person actions the task or deliverable. They are responsible for getting the work done or making the decision. It can sometimes be more than one person, but try to minimize the number of people involved.

Accountable: Owning The Task

This person or role is responsible for the overall completion of the task or deliverable. They won’t get the work done but are responsible for making sure it’s finalized. Ideally, this should be one person rather than a group to avoid confusion in terms of who actually owns the task.

Consulted: Assisting

This person, role, or group will provide information useful to complete the task or deliverable. There will be two-way communication between those responsible and those consulted.

Informed: Keeping Aware

These people or groups will be kept up to date on the task or deliverable. This could be on progress, or when the task or deliverable is completed. They won’t be asked for feedback or review, but they can be affected by the outcome of the task or deliverable. There should be one-way communication to these roles or groups.
