What is a RACI role exercise?

It is a process mapping exercise that defines task accountability and responsibility.  The output is a clear understanding of how each key process is executed.


  • R – Responsible: Does the work to complete the process/activity/task.
  • A – Accountable: Owns quality control, signs off on process/activity/task completion, is answerable for ensuring desired result is achieved.
  • C – Consulted: Contributes to and provides input into the process/activity/task.  Involved in 2 way communication as work is completed.
  • I – Informed: Receives updates on process/activity/task progress.  Involved in one way communication as work is done.
