This template aims to tie business case commitments to specific tracking activities and measures. Not all projects will have objective measures, but it is not acceptable to ignore that form of benefit realization for all initiatives. This plan should be completed at the same time as the business case, and the measured and total benefits identified here should align with the commitments made in the business case.
