Analysis of Activities
The analysis of activities may be interesting, but really is not very useful. The actual performance of the activities may be compared to the plan, but not much else.

The TVM approach starts with this basic framework which has its origins in the foundational structure of conventional financial accounting.

Until recently there has been an assumption that this exploitation was sustainable, but this view has now changed.
