It means constantly measuring the difference between what is forecast and what is delivered. It also means understanding management’s motivation concerning a stockmarket project. This sometimes subjective analysis helps assess the management team’s real motivation, to understand the corporate culture and also to measure the extent to which shareholders are taken into account.  The aim is to avoid opportunist projects and to identify managers capable of going one step further in a strategic vision undertaken over the long term.
