  • Notion is a sleek place from which you can confidently run any project, and is ideal for building a RACI matrix.

  • RACI is a project management method used to assign roles for each task.

    • R is for Responsible (who does the task), A is for Accountable (who approves the task), C is for Consulted (who needs to give input), and I is for Informed (who needs to know about the task completion).

  • Add each of these roles as properties in your Notion database.

  • Include multiple views to your RACI database, such as one that only shows tasks connected to Me. Me will reflect whoever is signed into Notion at the time.

  • Database entries in Notion are pages themselves, where you can store all the information regarding a task.

    • For more repetitive tasks, try creating a template button, and configure the content you want to replicate.

    • You can connect a task page to a Slack channel, so that any updates to the doc will be relayed there.

  • Keeping work within the task pages of your Notion database is helpful: the more time people spend there, the more familiar they will be with everyone's roles and their own.
