    How should the word "timeliness" be used?

    Just wondered how the word "timeliness" should be used?

    and in particular when mentioning contracts.

    It's important to make a timely offer when a company goes public, because a few days too early or too late and the whole thing can crash and burn. Timeliness is everything.

    The noun "timeliness" just expresses the adjective "timely" as a thing, a quality.

    John was known for his timeliness.
    John was known for being timely.

    How would you measure timeliness?

    What scientific way would you use to measure timeliness?

    There's no single tool (eg. like a watch) to measure timeliness. Say you want to ask something to your boss, like a pay raise. You would certainly try and pick the right time to ask him. If he's busy, or mad, or you've just made a blunder in your work, you might want to wait. Indeed, it's better to make a timely request -- that is, at the right time. As you see there's no way to measure how right the time is; it totally depends on the situation.
