What is RACI Analysis

A RACI Matrix (or responsibility assignment matrix) are a way of analysing the responsibilities of individual stakeholders in relation to a business activity or set of business activities. RACI is an acrronym for: Responsible, Accountable (sometimes approvier or final approving authority), Consulted and Informed.

There are several variations on the RACI Matrix:

  • RASCI: Responsible, Accountable, Supportive, Consulted, Informed
  • ARCI: Accountable, Responsible, Consulted, Informed
  • PACSI: Perform, Accountable, Control, Suggest, Informed
  • RACIQ: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed, Quality Review
  • RACI-VS: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed, Verifier, Signatory
  • CAIRO: Consulted, Accountable, Informed, Responsible, Omitted
  • DACI: Driver, Approver, Contributors, Informed
  • RATSI: Responsibility, Authority, Task, Support, Informed

Although there are several variations, the most commonly used is the RACI Matrix or the RASCI Matrix variation.

The elements of this technique are introduced below.

Responsible

The stakeholders who actually perform the work on the task. There must be at least one role who is responsible for a task. The responsible stakeholder may delegate work to other stakeholers (see Supportive for those who participate in an activity).

Accountable

The stakeholer who is ultimately answerable for the corrent completion of the task and delegates the work to those who are responsible. The accountable stakeholder must approve or signoff the work the responsible stakeholder performs. There must be only one accountable stakeholder for each task.

Consulted

Consulted stakeholders provide input to complete the task. Subject matter experts and those whose opinions are sought but do not assist in completing the task and with whom there is two-way communication.

Informed

Informed stakeholders are kept updated regarding the task. The information may be provided while the task is in progress or about the deliverable of the task. There is only one-way communication with informed stakeholders.

Extended Schemes

The below are the additional roles in the extended schemes.

Supportive

Supportive stakeholers provide additional resources to the responsible stakeholder in performing the task. Supportive stakeholders help complete the task unlike consulted stakeholders who provide input only.

Omitted

Omitted stakeholders are those who have been explicitely identified as not being part of the task. Identifying stakeholders kept clear of a task can be very useful when identifying job roles and capacity management.

Perform

See Responsible

Control

Stakeholders who review the result of the task. They have the ability to "veto" the output and their advice/recommendation is binding.

Suggest

Similar to Consulted. The advice given is not binding.

Quality Review

Stakeholders who provide a quality assurance position in relation to the task. They ensure the outputs of the task meet the expected quality standards.

Verifier

See Quality Review

Signatory

Signatories are often also accountable for a task but have overall signoff on the product/task outputs hand-off.

Dirver

A stakeholder who provides a single direction for the task/project.

Approver

Approvers make decisions regarding the task and are responsible if the task fails.

Contributors

Contributors are the stakeholders who are responsible for the task deliverables. There is two-way communication with contributors.

Responsibility

A stakeholder who makes sure the work is done.

Authority

See Accountable

Task

See Responsible

Support

See Supportive
