History of RACI - Who Invented it?
I have been using the RACI technique for some time (applying it to my work in information quality and data governance). I am currently writing a book and wanted to include the RACI technique as it applies to info quality work. I'm looking for the source (inventor?) of RACI so it can be attributed correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Who Invented RACI - Ethical IP protection
Chandresh Dhebar
I have made some refinements (like many) of RACI. I am practicing this. I am also aiming to use in my consulting now. Therefore, I want to know who invented it? I would like to attribute due credit to the thought leader.

RACI - Who Invented It?
Steingrim Bersvendsen
I believe RACI is derived from the tool for organizing projects in the project methodology called GDPM (Goal Directed Project Management), innovated in the early 1970s and published for the first time in 1984 by three Norwegians, Kristoffer v. Grude, Tor Haug and Erling S. Andersen.

RACI Has Limited History
Tariq Zubair, Member
I am searching for the history of RACI but there is limited history. Some are saying that it has been started in Japan. This technique is used for controlling the situation of critical nature like customer service and coordinator's role. But exactly the history has lost because nobody recorded the real inventor of RACI.

RASIC Origin and Development
Andy Tabby, Member
Hello, I'm also curious as to RASICS origin and development. I understand RACI was purportedly developed during the 1950's by Ernst Hijmans for the Canadian firm Leethan Simpson, LTD. This fostered the initial or at least most common form of Roles and Responsibility Matrix. This eventually was adapted to become RASIC but I don't know by whom or for what purpose.
