What does the future hold? Checking up on backlog: the industry’s and yours
Abstract: Few construction companies can get by bidding on, performing and completing one job at a time. The typical practice is to build up a backlog of projects that ensures the business will be busy for the immediate and maybe even long-term future. This article explains how contractors can engage in backlog management using industry data as well as company-focused best practices. A sidebar notes that key performance indicators can greatly aid in this effort.
