Performance measurement is the mechanism by which firms inform themselves of their true performance and locate unnecessary costs through the supply chain. These can then be converted into substantially higher profits in a carefully targeted improvement programme. Performance measurement for construction profitability by Clive Thomas Cain (published by Blackwells at £37.50) is aimed at all those at the sharp end in every sector of the construction industry, including clients and end-users. Using the everyday business language of construction firms, it explains how to set-up and run performance measurement, self-assessment and benchmarking systems.
