Business Performance progress

Actions in the Business Performance workstream are focused on a more comprehensive and certain pipeline, and on sharing good business and risk management practice.

Improving the performance of businesses in the sector will contribute to all four Accord goals of increasing productivity, raising capability, improving resilience and restoring confidence, pride and reputation. The primary Accord outcome for this workstream is 'sustainable, resilient, successful businesses' but many others will be supported including greater job security, reliable project delivery, business profitability, pipeline certainty, and trust and confidence in the sector.
