RACI stands for responsible, accountable, consulted and informed and is a way of stating (ideally on a single page), how people are expected to be engaged in a process. See the "Key" section before for a full description of each letter.

This RACI tool enables you to quickly and easily define and publish a RACI. Roles are taken from and/or added to the Roles database table. Processes are taken from and/or added to the Processes database table. You can use those tables to add more information.

Processes should be listed in the order in which they are most likely to be used, i.e. starting with initiation, then through solutioning and work, to quality assurance and delivery.

Roles should be listed in the order in which they are engaged in the processes.

Click on each cell of the grid to edit the content of the cell. The letter in the cell is the RACI indicator. Some small text can also be added under the indicator as a qualifiying label, which clarifies how a role is involved.
