Performance Measurement: ROI and EVA

Variance analysis receives some criticism as a performance measure. What about other measures such as ROI and EVA?

Do research on the Internet and show the reference for the information. Remember to respond to a colleague’s posting also.

Professor’s Note: Variance analysis compares actual performance to budgeted performance in the areas of material, labor, and overheads. If the results of a business unit show all positive variances, should the manager be rewarded for (excellent) performance? A simple counter argument can be – what if the manager had padded his business unit’s budget?
