Responsibility assignment matrix
• A responsibility assignment matrix (RAM), also known as RACI matrix or linear responsibility chart (LRC), describes the participation by various roles in completing tasks or deliverables for a project or business process . It is especially useful in clarifying roles and responsibilities in cross- functional/departmental projects and processes. • RACI is an acronym derived from the four key responsibilities most typically used: Responsible , Accountable , Consulted , and Informed .
• Responsible (also Recommender) • Those who do the work to achieve the task. There is at least one role with a participation type of responsible, although others can be delegated to assist in the work required (see also RASCI below for separately identifying those who participate in a supporting role). • Accountable (also Approver or final approving authority) • The one ultimately answerable for the correct and thorough completion of the deliverable or task, and the one who delegates the work to those responsible. In other words, an accountable must sign off (approve) work that responsible provides. There must be only one accountable specified for each task or deliverable. • Consulted (sometimes Consultant or counsel) • Those whose opinions are sought, typically subject matter experts; and with whom there is two-way communication. • Informed (also Informee) • Those who are kept up-to-date on progress, often only on completion of the task
• In organizational studies, resource management is the efficient and effective development of an organization's resources when they are needed. Such resources may include financial resources, inventory, human skills, production resources, or information technology (IT). Resource management is the process by which businesses manage their various resources effectively. Those resources can be intangible – people and time – and tangible – equipment, materials, and finances.
• Finances – Can it meet current expenses or afford to invest in new equipment or staff training? • Staffing – Does it have the right people for the work at hand? Will it need to hire if it gets that new client and if so, what skills will those people need to have? • Physical space – Is the company’s office or manufacturing space configured so that other resources can be managed for maximum efficiency?
