Metrics for change

CAAS, the Compliance Assessment and Analysis System, allows you to measure compliance with built environment standards, and further, delivers a complete Compliance Improvement Loop for moving your compliance forwards…

If you can measure it, you can manage it is an old adage. If we can develop metrics, no matter how imprecise, we can start to measure improvement, compare ourselves reasonably objectively to others, and focus on the things we need to do better. If we subscribe to the idea that a business should always strive to be better, then measuring is important.
