RACI charts can be used as a tool to manage the key roles and responsibilities of a project. Creating a RACI chart can be a challenge and takes practice. In this assignment, you will create and submit a RACI chart. As the project manager, you have been tasked with determining the roles of team members. There are no “right” or “wrong” answers, but several ways to interpret how the tasks and resources should be allocated.
Create a RACI chart for a website reveal based on the tasks listed below. You may use the provided RACI Excel template.
Project: Launching new website at company picnic
Task: Taylor, the company’s Senior Vice President (SVP), told you that you’ll be surprising the 100+ employees of your company with the launch of the new website at the company picnic next month. She said she trusts your judgement but would like to run the final plan across A.J., the head of HR, who is in charge of the picnic. Everyone in the company has been working on some part of the website for over a year. You need to work the exciting reveal into the company picnic. Your committee – made up of project managers from across the company – needs to complete the following tasks:
- Create signage.
- Create a fun way to reveal the new website.
- Write up FAQs about the new website.
- Create a teaser to send out prior to the picnic.
- Schedule time to work together.
- Create a timeline for the reveal.
