A CMA webinar hosted jointly with The Think Tank

Held 11am, March 3, 2020. Panel member details at end.

Unsurprisingly Will Johnson-Marshall picked out product marketing – in particular traceability, tracking which product eventually gets installed – as a key issue. Knowing what is in a building, who specified it, and why, is likely to be important for some time. This was likely to be important in decommissioning or demolition too, so it would be important that this information could be kept.

It allocates points for performance across a four year rolling window, meaning those at the top will have been producing work deemed excellent by the CMA judges for a period of years.
