Newton, MA—May 28, 2009—PSMJ Resources, Inc., the premier management consulting firm for the A/E/C (architecture/engineering/construction) industries, today published the 2009 PSMJ Circle of Excellence.
The PSMJ Circle of Excellence is determined by weighting each firm’s ranking in the overall PSMJ A/E Financial Performance Survey with respect to thirteen individual benchmarks. These benchmarks are indicative of performance in the various aspects of business operations, including cash flow, overhead control, business development, project performance, staff utilization, and overall profitability.
“The PSMJ Circle of Excellence is not determined by firm revenue, profitability, or sheer size – nor is it determined by any subjective criteria. The thirteen benchmarks that determine the PSMJ Circle of Excellence were chosen to reflect that the firms are well-managed, have a strong client base, and are led in a responsible and sustainable manner. PSMJ believes that clients prefer to work with well-run firms because they are more likely to provide superior service and value,” explains H.E. “Dan” Daniels, PSMJ’s survey editor.
