From the Paper:

"It will not be very easy to evaluate the effectiveness of objectives and policies of Lockheed Martin because some objectives are long-term. Analyzing the current internal and external situation of the company is necessary to review strategies and objectives. Getting responses about the new strategies and objectives after communicating clearly with all employees can also help to review the strategy plan and annual objectives.
"At the end of each year, analyzing financial data and different key financial ratios like Return on Equity (ROE), Return on Asset (ROA), current ratio, and profit margin ratio can help in evaluating strategies. Significant changes in financial statements and ratios cannot be seen very early in case of long-term objectives."
