    From what I can see, one of the biggest advantages of using a RACI matrix is how it keeps everyone on the same page on a project as to who is responsible for a particular task. This is important to prevent miscommunications later on and assigning of blame when tasks don't get done. What are some other good advantages of using a RACI matrix?

    The RACI matrix is not just another chart to be completed. This chart represents the fundamental basis of Six Sigma methodology that where one person/executive is in charge of deploying projects, (selecting projects/overseeing conflicts) those projects are accomplished more easily. The RACI matrix helps implement this strategy more easily by making it clear who is in charge and what each person must do.
