The Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RASCI)

The RASCI Matrix is a tool used to clearly define roles and responsibilities within a team or organization. It is used to identify who is responsible for specific tasks or decisions, who is accountable for the overall success or failure of a project or initiative, and who needs to be consulted or informed throughout the process.

I completely re-evaluated the role of innovation in business growth: before reading this book I have to admit I thought it only entailed product new features and technologies enhancements, while now I see it has everything to do with meeting customer needs and uncovering a business USP, which automatically translates in sales! Could not recommend it more!

Unlike most business innovation books I read over the last years (and even decades) when reading How to create innovation you immediately understand the authors have been there, innovating and transforming some of the world's most amazing brands. Great work!

Not only this book offers the most comprehensive innovation and business change overview but it really helps you take the next step, driving you step by step from theory to practice (also with super useful background notes and driving questions)

I really enjoyed the whole book, but mostly the culture chapter, mainly because I always failed to acknowledge its major role in favouring or inhibiting business growth. Loved the graphics that helped connect all the dots in a visually appealing (and way easier) way.

We’been willing to innovate our business for some years now, but then we always got stuck before we even started, because basically we had no idea where to start…This book helped us do just that: find the right starting point with guiding questions and an incredibly comprehensive innovation overview.

Why we use it

Projects can be difficult to track, especially when they are complicated affairs embedded within complex organizations.

The RASCI Matrix aims to clarify a project’s workflow by defining who owns what and to what level certain people should be involved with the project.

Ultimately, while we’re holding people accountable for their responsibilities, the clear articulation of expectations should, in theory, help employees succeed, not feel threatened that they’re expected to fail.

How It Works

The RASCI Matrix is typically presented in a table format, with tasks or responsibilities listed in the left column and team members listed across the top row. Each cell in the table is then used to describe the level of involvement or responsibility of a particular team member for a specific task or responsibility. By communicating clearly through a visual representation of responsibilities and expectations, the RASCI Matrix helps keep teams and projects on task.
In the RASCI matrix, there are five different levels of involvement or responsibility:
– Responsible: responsible for completing the task or making the decision.
– Accountable: accountable for the success or failure of the task or decision.
– Supportive: provide support to the person responsible for completing the task or making the decision.
– Consulted: need to be consulted during the task or decision-making process.
– Informed: need to be informed about the task or decision, but do not have a direct role in its completion or implementation.

What is the goal of the model?

The goal of the RASCI Matrix is to help projects succeed by clearly articulating the level of involvement different individuals have with the process.
