Benchmarking best practices

-------------------------------

Benchmarking involves comparing your own performance, or that of your organisation, against best practice for your industry, function, sector or activity.

Clients ask us to carry out benchmarking assignments for a variety of reasons:

Poor benchmarking can degenerate into “voyeurism”. As a consequence we push our clients to: (1) identify the implications; (2) develop a workable action plan; and (3) follow it through.

Illustrative assignments we have carried out include:

When we benchmark, we typically collect both quantitative and qualitative information. Most projects have five separate phases:

Planning
Data collection
Analysing Results
Implementing Changes
Reviewing Progress

For a fuller discussion of benchmarking and our standard five-phased approach, see the following article under “Resources & Publications”: benchmarking-article.pdf
