I recently started consulting for a client and decided to develop a RACI document to help ensure that everyone involved in the project understands who is doing what, who the key decision makers are and who needs to be involved along the way. I typically work in a very rapid, agile fashion so when initiating a new project, I find that getting everyone aligned about roles and responsibilities is one of the keys to a successful venture.
Like most of you, I am reluctant to re-invent the wheel, especially when it comes to creating new documents that are fairly standard and so I went in search of a RACI template for Google Sheets. I was surprised to come up empty-handed. I found RACI templates available in Excel format and various sites offering to make their template available if I provide them with my email address (no, thank you).
I ended up creating a template from scratch which I’m making available to anyone who’d like to use it. Enjoy and pay it forward!
