In many countries of the world, construction companies can be shown as highly profitable enterprises that develop economically in a favorable environment. The existence of a construction market is the main financial condition for meeting the human demand for housing. Every company, from the time of its establishment and throughout its existence, should strive to effectively manage the organization so that their enterprises and organizations can gain a superior competitive position in the market.
