The purpose of the study is to:
– provide the Ministry with a resource to highlight the importance measurements are to the New Zealand economy and to the social wellbeing of New Zealanders (this is seen as key to providing effective advice to Government and government agencies)
– provide industry with advice on the importance of measurements to their business
– establish the risks associated with poor measurements, which need to be considered for individual companies and to New Zealand’s international and domestic trade.
