  • Abstract:
    Increased competition, customer demands, and higher quality requirements in the global environment have all forced the construction industry to pay much more attention to the concept of “performance” over the last two decades. As a result, there has been a substantial body of literature on performance and performance measurement in the discipline of construction management. This paper analyses the most recent literature on performance and performance measurement published in top-ranked construction management journals to identify the aspects and features of performance studied in different contexts. Peer-reviewed articles published in major construction management journals are included while grey literature has been excluded. The objective of this research was to examine and classify systematically the literature dealing with different facets of the construction performance research domain by using a meta-analysis instrument as methodology. Based on this literature review's findings, the paper maps research trends and identifies gaps in current knowledge for future research.
