What is Task Effort?


Task Effort is the total amount of work consisting of tasks and completed to achieve a particular result. It is characterized by the effective force applied by human resources assigned to the tasks to perform the work and produce the result.

 Because a task can be regarded as the smallest piece of work requiring some resources to be consumed and having a specific outcome to be produced, task effort means an expected amount of effort employees have to make to utilize the necessary resources for producing the outcome. In this regard, task effort can be used as a way to plan and measure work to be done. 

For instance, task effort estimates can help plan a project by:

  • Estimating tasks required for doing project work
  • Calculating time duration per task
  • Determining an amount of resources required for doing the tasks
  • Identifying key constraints having an impact to the project 

Estimation of task effort is a great way of managing and measuring various processes and projects. A task effort estimate serves the baseline for further analyzing and planning. A manager can use it to compare the actual task effort with the planned one (the baseline) and then determine whether there’s a gap between the metrics.
