Global performance measures for transnational construction corporations

Source PublicationConstruction Management and Economics

The top transnational construction corporations (TCCs) are ranked according to their international revenues by the Engineering News Record. The amount or share of international revenues of a contractor however does not necessarily reflect the contractor’s global performance. The geographic spread of works in different countries and regions of the world and the extent of liberalization or protection of markets do influence the global performance of TCCs. To account for these factors, new measures of global spread, global intensity and global intensity with domestic performance are proposed which measures the global performance of contractors. These measures of global performance were applied to the top 20 international contractors reported by the ENR. The ranking of the top 20 TCCs shifts when the new measures of global performance are applied to these companies. One salient finding is that not all TCCs belonging to the top five, in terms of international revenues, are truly global construction corporations based on new global performance indicators. A significant implication for future research work is to assess how managers of TCCs can transform global presence and performance, as reflected in these new measures, into global competitive advantages.
