RACI implementation, where to start?
Updated: Nov 5, 2021
Over the last few years I have been contacted by many Directors, Senior Managers and assistants to a senior position in companies both locally and internationally . The key reasons for the contact is a request for key manager RACI training. The issues highlighted are infighting over who is accountable for what within the organisation.
I then ask a simple question, who in the organisation will be the ongoing RACI sponsor and own RACI implementation within the organisation. Surprisingly this stops a lot of people in their tracks as no one wants ownership.
Without top down sponsorship, (Director, Board, CEO etc) and a person within the organisation at a senior level owning the organisational RACI, RACI becomes just another spreadsheet in the pile.
RACI is a powerful tool when it comes to organisational role alignment or just simple task accountability at a project level, but without sponsorship at the right level and an internal owner of RACI within the organisation the true power of RACI can not be realised.
