One method of measuring customer satisfaction is the Net Promoter Score.

The Net Promoter Score / System (NPS) is a simple but rigorous survey methodology. 

Scoreboard: On a scale of 0-10 would you recommend ABC Construction for your next project? What is the primary reason for your answer?

Regardless of how you measure it, customer satisfaction is critical for a contractor and must be top-of-mind for everyone when looking at their scoreboard.  

NPS starts with a couple of simple questions:

  1. On a scale of 0-10, would you recommend ABC Construction for your next project? 
     
  2. What is the primary reason for your answer?

The important part is the follow-up on the reasons cited in the second question for continuous improvement.

Turning this methodology into a regular system is what can really set contractors apart. We have seen some contractors who survey their customers each month throughout a project and are continuously improving each month. This ensures recurring work with satisfied customers.




A Typical Project - Cash Flow S-Curve
Ensuring great financial outcomes is the ONLY way to build a sustainable construction business that can serve customers and develop team members over the long-term.
Accurate Projections - The Tale of Two Project Managers
Few things will improve operational execution for contractors faster than a rigorous project review and projection process. Projections are really just continuous planning, learning, refining and adjusting.
Production Tracking - Having Fun and Winning
Contractors will get the most out of their teams by building a culture around the fun of the construction game and how fun playing a game is and how good winning feels. How fun are you making your projects?
