NFB CI Club
To be the Best of the Best... This means We will Manage our Business through Performance Management and Continuous Improvement driven by Sharing and Learning best practice from each other through Openness & Trust.
The Continuous Improvement Club was formed in 2008. Its member companies recognise that continuous improvement can only be achieved through performance measurement.
The success of the club is founded on the commitment and participation of its member companies. Senior representatives, MDs and Board Directors, develop and drive the club's continuous improvement policies. They meet annually to review and analyse data; refine the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs); set targets and objectives for the Club; agree the continuous improvement workshops programme and topics/issues to be addressed. They are supported by their company Continuous Improvement Managers, who meet quarterly. The KPIs are grouped into four main categories or Critical Success Factors (CSFs):
- Health & Safety
- Considerate Constructors Scheme
The Club is facilitated by Vassos Chrysostomou of IBE Partnership. Each member company's data and information from projects above £250K required for the club is gathered and reported quarterly by 'data collectors' using a dedicated software tool provided by IBE Partnership.
David Brill Director at Stepnell Ltd and inaugural chairman for the club comments:
"...Construction is a competitive industry and contractors will always have to increase efficiency and reduce costs to survive and prosper. Continuous Improvement undertaken effectively will increase efficiency and reduce costs...".
