An effective "Performance Measurement System" is a key requirement for success in today's uncertain business environment, as ongoing performance monitoring becomes ever more essential in an increasingly competitive arena. The construction industry in particular has failed to develop a workable system with which to do this, despite various attempts in recent years by researchers to develop a model specifically for use in the field. The problem is generally agreed to lie in the fact that traditional performance measurement systems have only measured success based on past performance ("lagging indicators") whereas the key to successfully increasing project performance in the future lies in being able to predict future trends and suggest areas for improvement ("leading indicators"). Therefore it could be argued that the development of a predictive model for use within the construction industry is imperative for its very survival.
