R – stands for (Responsibility) – Someone who is to carry out the task.

A – stands for (Accountability) – someone who is the final authority and accountable for the completion of the task.

C – stands for (Consulted) – someone who needs to be consulted during the carrying out of the task.

I – stands for (Informed) – someone who needs to be kept informed after the task has been completed.

RACI Matrix – Mapping the “As Is”

Step – 01

List down the tasks of the work process in sequence.

Step – 02

Identify all the relevant stakeholders involved in the process.

Step – 03

For each of tasks, identify who is responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed.

Step – 04

Put in remarks to explain the roles and responsibilities if necessary.

Once a process has been analyzed and improvements made, a new “should be” RACI matrix can be developed.

RACI Matrix – Additional Guidelines

  • Minimize “R”s . Too many “R”s may cause bottle necks in a specific task.
  • Limit to only one ‘A’ . Multiple ‘A’s may cause confusion as to who is in charged and accountable.
  • Minimum ‘C’s . Too many ‘C’s may cause bottle necks in a specific task. However, make sure all necessary stakeholders are consulted.
  • Identify all ‘I’s . Ensure all stakeholders who need to be kept informed are identified so that related follow up tasks can be carried out.
