Effective benchmarking programs drive performance improvement through identification and implementation of the best practices of other organizations.
Just as great ideas can be born in any employee’s mind, they can also take flight within other organizations. Consequently, emulating the exceptional performance methods of other organizations needs to be one aspect of every organization’s continuous improvement efforts.
Benchmarking possesses its own challenges and risks. Those participating in this activity must objectively evaluate both their organization’s performance as well as that of the benchmark company. Furthermore, they must identify the true drivers of benchmarked performance in order to emulate them later. Similarly, evaluators need to understand the context within which the superior benchmarked performance is achieved, including company, culture, product/service and market characteristics.
Effective benchmarking, especially that of companies from other industries, is an especially powerful performance enhancement tool. StrategyDriven and members of our Service Providers Network stand ready to support your benchmarking efforts whatever your circumstances and to the degree desired. From online advice and quantitative performance benchmarks to direct consultation and the provision of services, we are your most trusted partner.
