• D = Driver
  • A = Approver
  • C = Contributor
  • I = Informed

Those names make more sense than RACI’s: Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed. The “R” and “A” especially cause confusion.

If you don’t like that one either, lucky you: there are 9 billion other alternatives to RACI.

  • DARE: Deciders, Advisors, Recommenders, Execution stakeholders
  • RAPID: Recommend, Agree, Perform, Input, Decide
  • ARPA: Accountable, Responsible, Participant, Advisor
  • RATSI: Responsible, Authority, Task, Support, Informed
  • PACSI: Perform, Accountable, Control, Suggest, Informed
  • CAIRO: (aka “RACIO”) Same as RACI but with an added O: “Out of the loop” (or “omitted”)
  • PDQA: Primary, Decision, Quality, Assist
  • RASCEIO: (Seriously?) Responsible, Accountable, Support, Consult, Execute, Inform, Overview
