The SiriusDecisions B-to-B Buying Decision Process Framework

July 8, 2019

Decisionmaking is a cognitive process defined by psychologists as the selection of a course of action from multiple alternatives (e.g. what to eat, where to shop). John Dewey, the pragmatic philosopher and psychologist, introduced the first decision process framework for consumer buying in his book How We Think, which was published in 1910. Since then, Dewey’s framework has been adapted many times, but the five basic stages of consumer decisions remain the same: problem/need recognition, information search, evaluation of alternatives, purchase decision and post-purchase behavior.

Bringing Job Costing to the Field

whitePaper | April 16, 2020

In construction, we are often designing and constructing made-to-order assets, so there is immediately less certainty. We may be dealing with multiple projects for different people, with different schedules, and run by different project managers. Each will be in a different location, with different site footprints, different ground conditions, different access routes, etc. And, partly influenced by their locations, we are often dealing with different suppliers we might select local designers, subcontractors, plant, materials, and product suppliers based on their proximity to the site.
