You mean "time meant to be spent" on the project, right? ;-) Since the
actual time
spent should be clocked.

Anyhow, you can set org-columns-default-format, e.g.:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-columns-default-format "%TODO %60ITEM(Task)
%5Effort(Estim){:} %5CLOCKSUM(Clock)")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Then switch to column view using C-c C-x C-c.  Effort column should reflect
the totals for the time you planned to spend on the tasks in the top most
