A term used in the Wovex Mapping powertool to differentiate ‘levels’ of benefits visually. IE Supporting Benefits may be essential enablers of the benefits delivered directly by change Initiatives and measured as early indicators of progress towards Benefits. 

Or they may in some cases be incidental to the key purposes of the programme, but essential for explaining the logic of delivering benefits when mapping.

(In the cloud supporting Benefits are simply Benefit Objects that are useful to be visually differentiated to show layers of contribution as bot Benefits and Supporting Benefits are objects that can have Measures tracked in relation them)
