Stern Stewart EVA

EVA, or Economic Value Added, is an integrated framework for performance measurement, value-based planning and incentive compensation developed by Stern Stewart founders Joel Stern and G.

The Stern Stewart EVA framework is now employed by more than 300 companies worldwide, including Coca-Cola, Siemens and Sony, as well as government agencies such as the US Postal Service and The Port of Singapore Authority. Companies that have adopted EVA have frequently realized long lasting improvements in operating efficiency, growth, morale, motivation and stock market value.
