RASIC or RACI Chart in Project Management

A RASIC chart template is a project management tool that will help you assign correct responsibilities to your different project tasks. It is also called RACI or RASI or RASCI depending on the projects and needs of the moment.

It uses the principle of having mostly always only one person responsible for a task, this person is the R=Responsible. This is the person that has to do the task. That has to do the work to achieve the task. This person might not have to do the task by herself, it can assign this task to other people for example if it is a manager then he's responsible for the task but his team will do the task. This is what the R for responsible means

Other persons can be assigned to task of A=Approval or sometimes Accountable, which are your bosses or any other person that has authority to decide or will be held accountable if the project or the task fails.

Then you are not working alone and so you need S=Support people that will help the Responsible to complete the task. These can be a secretary that will type something for you or a laboratory person that will make an analysis.

The I=Information member are the people who you need to inform about the task. Some say it is also a person that can provide you information but in that case this person should be more a Support person.

The final letter is the C and this stands for C=Consulting
