Question for Discussion-Responsibility Allocation

Postby Sud Sat Jul 12, 2014 6:46 am

You are setting up your project team and you are looking at a chart that shows that the programming will be performed by Systems Development, the infrastructure will be implemented by Infrastructure Systems, the customer communication will be handled by the Call Center. This is an example of what type of chart?

A. RACI

B. Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS)

C. Work Breakdown Structure

D. Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS)

All are related options. How to choose right one?

I think it RBS as we are defining the roles of the team members.
roles are define during the planning stage n RBS comes in planning stage

Is this correct?

RBs is to categories the resources based on their resiurce type.

So for role assignment RACI is correct

What is the right answer. mainly question is taking about mapping roles with responsibility and that is near to RACI but RACI is mapping roles and responsibility with WBS activities.???

In the context of the question, RACI looks correct answer, as it assigns responsibilities to the departments.

Vivek, RACI is assigning to departments or indivduals.

Hit.Singh, Assigning resources can be groups or Individuals. In this case Groups can be department!

Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS). A hierarchical representation of the project organization that
illustrates the relationship between project activities and the organizational units that will perform those activities.

An operational department such as information technology or purchasing can see all of its project responsibilities by looking at its portion of the OBS -P261
RACI. A common type of responsibility assignment matrix that uses responsible, accountable, consult, and inform
statuses to define the involvement of stakeholders in project activities.


my take is OBS, still you are confused please review the Saket video.
