RACI recently launched it's RACI application on the iTunes and Google stores
Google play was very straight forward and took one week on the other hand iTunes took 2 months due to very stringent controls.
The Question I ask is has Apple gone too far with its control measures and will the advancements Google is making with Android along with the Google and Samsung devices mark the end of Apples market dominance and stringent controls over their platform
RACI is an acronym for Responsible, Accountable, Consult and Inform.
There are other systems derived from RACI. Such as the penultimate alternative 'RASCI'; where 'S' signifies support or 'DACI' where 'D' signifies Driver. Said alternatives are unnecessarily complicated and have tendencies to confuse their respective audiences. There are also varying opinions on which letter of RACI is the most important. 'A' is unequivocally the most important, as 'A' represents the entity who's ultimately Accountable for the related task. It is the Accountable person's head that is on the chopping block if the task is not completed, they may not be the doer but it’s their head at risk.
RACI can be used in different areas of a business including the following
Clarification of positions within an organizational structure.
Accountability and responsibility of tasks within a department.
Accountability and responsibility of tasks within a project.
Accountability and responsibility of tasks within a role.
Capacity refers to the amount of product that can be theoretically produced during a period of time, while effective capacity is the amount of product that is produced during the same period of time taking into account the impact of uncontrollables.
In business capacity may be measured by the number of employees and how much work each employee achieves in a day, uncontrollables may include employee sick days, holidays, having additional employees available for growth or peak demand who otherwise are not working at full capacity.
Effective capacity when a business is running efficiently is around 80% and when running inefficiently closer to 50-60%.
I’m often called into a companies where the CEO has employed more and more staff to increase capacity to find he is no further ahead.
Common complaints include lack of communication, lack of accountability and one department not knowing what the other is doing. All of these inefficiencies add up to a loss of capacity and in turn profitability.
