Understanding the Planned Benefit of a Project

FYI: This is linked to Editing Projects. 

The planned benefit is the estimated dollar amount a project represents to the organization.

The benefit is input as part of the business case and is a necessary component to determine the net value for a project. The planned benefit is not calculated by Workfront, and it is recommended that each organization establish a policy as to how this value is determined.

To input the planned benefit of a project:

  1. Click Projects in the Global Navigation Bar
  2. Click on the project you wish to enter the planned benefit for.
  3. Click the Project Details tab, then click the Business Case subtab.
  4. Click Edit Project Info and enter the planned benefit amount in the Planned Benefit field.
  5. Click Save.
