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.




Top Talent - Who Are Your Top 10%?
Contractors are all highly leveraged around their top talent. Here’s a great exercise with your executive team:
Labor Productivity - ToT / MRI
Labor productivity IS NOT the biggest problem with project productivity. For a contractor nearly every process in the company must be focused around these three areas
Budgeting the Right Time for New Tools
Have you ever created a tool or process for your company only to find that people aren’t using it effectively and some don’t even know about it?
