Calculating Return On Investment (ROI)

The Return on Investment metric is located in the portfolio optimizer. Return On Investment (ROI) is a tool in Workfront that allows portfolio managers to quickly see a consistent metric at the project level. Portfolio managers use this metric during project selection. The ROI is displayed as a percentage value for each project in the selected portfolio, and those values roll up to provide an overall ROI for the selected projects.

Workfront uses the following formula to calculate ROI: ((Planned Benefit - Budgeted Cost) / Budgeted Cost) x 100
