Increasing competition is forcing organizations to make strategic decisions in the long term. A successful performance measurement systems are lacking in the construction industry. Moreover, the results achieved from the existing financial-based performance measurement systems cannot be used to derive future performance. Therefore, a comprehensive performance measurement system consisting of both qualitative and quantitative measures is needed for the construction industry. The purpose of this paper is to investigate and explore the impact of organization strategic decisions on organization performance in Saudi Arabia. This study is based on a hypothetical framework and questionnaire survey obtained from 93 respondents from the top level of 28 construction organizations in Arar, KSA. This paper is one of the few studies which investigate the relationship between organization strategic decisions and possibilities impact on organization performance. It concluded that there is a strong relationship between the organization strategic decisions measures and the organization performance perspectives indicators.
