Definition RAPID Approach. Description.

The RAPID Approach is a decision-making tool that can help assigning clear and specific roles when a decision has to be made. It was described by Bain & Company consultants Paul Rogers and Marcia Blenko in the HBR of Jan 2006.

It is an Acronym for:

  • R = Recommend. The people responsible for making a proposal or offering alternatives, gathering input, and providing the right data and analysis. They must have a common sense about what is reasonable, practical and effective.

  • A = Agree. The people having veto power. Signs the proposal, somebody from the legal department.

  • I = Input. The people that must be consulted. They should provide information and are typically involved in the implementation.

  • D = Decide. Formal decision-maker. Accountable, has authority to make the decision and the power to commit the organization.

  • P = Perform. The people that are responsible for execution the proposal.

This tool is similar to the RACI Method which is also aimed at identifying roles and responsibilities in decisions and projects.
