How To Make a RACI Chart For A Project (With Example)

A RACI chart is a visual tool that shows the roles and responsibilities of team members for project tasks and deliverables. It is an efficient way to ensure everyone is on the same page and understands what they have to do. RACI stands for responsible, accountable, consulted and informed, and each letter is a category that's used on the RACI matrix to define team members' roles in a project. Each task must have at least one responsible team member who does the work to complete the task, and it can have more than one responsible party assigned. Additionally, each task must have one accountable person attached to it, and it's not always the project manager.

Finally, each team member must provide feedback that puts the deliverable in context to the whole project or within its own expectations. All projects can benefit from the clear expectations provided by RACI charts, but it's especially helpful when managing multiple resources or having task dependencies. The most important details in this text are the three steps to create a RACI matrix. The first step is to identify the roles and responsibilities of the people involved in the project, such as the architect, project manager, contractor, and subcontractors. The second step is to list tasks, deliverables and milestones, and any decision-making processes. The third step is to assign tasks, roles and responsibilities to each person on the project team.
