Organizations need to manage the responsibility of the employees with respect to all the activities that are carried out daily. RACI matrices are used to this end, providing information about who must do what, i.e., the responsibility of each human resource regarding each activity, e.g. responsible for its execution, responsible for approving it once executed, etcetera. On the other hand, nowadays organizations increasingly use modelling notations to represent their processes, being BPMN the standard for business process modelling. in this paper we focus on a concrete type of RACI matrices called RASCI and introduce a novel approach to build RASCI-aware business process models in BPMN based on what we have called RASCI patterns. Furthermore, we explain how the transformation of information between RASCI matrices and RASCIaware BPMN models can be (semi-)automatically performed. We believe the transformation from RASCI to BPMN and vice versa may be very useful to organizations, since it releases them from having to manually maintain BPMN models and RASCI matrices separately and it allows them to focus on only one of them for responsibility management.
