4 McGraw-Hill/Irwin © 2005 The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., All Rights Reserved. 4 Questions Involved in Assessing a Strategy’s Success 1.Are we moving in the proper direction? Are our assumptions about major trends and changes correct? Should we adjust or abort the strategy? 2.How are we performing? Are objectives and schedules being met? Are costs, revenues, and cash flows matching projections? Do we need to make operational changes?
