It is important to have a well-defined Project organization structure to facilitate successful execution of a Project. Let us consider a generic Project organization structure. A Project usually has a hierarchical team structure. The Project sponsor is generally from the senior management and provides the budget and resources required for the execution of the Project.

The Project manager is the head of the team for the Project and reports to the Project sponsor. The Project manager has a set of team leaders, who in turn have team members. The team members would  be working on the tasks as assigned by the respective team leaders.

While defining the Project organisation structure, the Project manager needs to consider the following   tasks.

  • Requirements of the Project
  • Personal needs and aspirations of the team members
  • People development needs
  • Skills, background, and experience of the team members

RACI Matrix

Any Project without a clear definition of roles and responsibilities has the potential to get into trouble.

It is important that the members of a Project team are clear regarding what is expected from them.

Because, this clearness enables timely completion of work, within budget, and meeting the adequate  level of quality.

The RACI matrix is used to indicate the roles and responsibilities within a Project so that any confusion in this regard could be avoided. It is used to delegate tasks, activities, and so on, within a Project so that the team members have clarity on their extent of participation.

Each member in the Project team has a definite role assigned according to the RACI matrix. Thus, the  multiple parties are involved.

RACI matrix is a formal mechanism to establish the role for each stakeholder/participant when  A RACI matrix is also known as Linear Responsibility Chart (LRC) or Responsibility Assignment  Matrix (RAM)
