Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A benefit shortfall results from the actual benefits of a venture being lower than the projected, or estimated, benefits of that venture. If, for instance, a company is launching a new product or service and projected sales are 40 million dollars per year, whereas actual annual sales turn out to be only 30 million dollars, then the benefit shortfall is said to be 25 percent. Sometimes the terms "demand shortfall" or "revenue shortfall" are used instead of benefit shortfall. Public and private enterprises alike fall victim to benefit shortfalls. Prudent planning of new ventures will include the risk of benefit shortfalls in risk assessment and risk management. If large benefit shortfalls coincide with large cost overruns in a venture - as happened for the Channel tunnel between the UK and France - then fiscal and other distress will be particularly pronounced for that venture.
