Clearly defined roles a responsibilities pave the way for successful project execution, and RACI charts are a simple, straightforward tool for achieving this aim. A RACI chart is simply a table that lists job titles or functions across the top row, responsibilities or tasks down the left-hand column, and the following terms to link everything together:
Responsible – the person responsible for completing a given task
Accountable – the person to makes sure the work gets done, and/or that the right decision gets made
Consulted – one or more people who must be consulted with, prior to a given task being completed
Informed – one or more people who must be informed after a task is completed or a decision is made
