A growing number of companies are tying their performance measures to the creation of shareholder value. This study documents this trend through interviews with executives at 12 case-study companies, and also analyzes survey responses from an additional 153 companies. Case studies describe how economic value added, cash flow return on investment, traditional accounting measures, and other performance measures are calculated, tied to companiesÕ strategic plans, related to capital budgeting, and used to evaluate and compensate managers. The case-study companies are American Optical Corporation, AT&T Corp., The Boeing Company, The Clorox Company, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., Federal Signal Corporation, Meredith Corporation, FMC Corporation, National Semiconductor Corporation, PepsiCo, Inc., Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc., and Simon Property Group, Inc.
