Resources – Business Benchmarking

Business Benchmarking can be functional to any business process or function and a variety of research techniques may be necessary to complete this process. Benchmarking research methods include informal conversations with customers, employees, or suppliers; research techniques such as focus groups; or in-depth marketing research, quantitative research, surveys, questionnaires, re-engineering analysis, process mapping, quality control variance reports, or financial ratio analysis. Before embarking this fact-finding between other organizations it is essential that you know your own organization's function and processes. The initiating firm focuses on its observation and examination of business processes with a goal of identifying and observing the best practices from one or more benchmark firms. Activity analysis will be necessary where the objective is to benchmark cost and efficiency; gradually more applied to back-office processes where outsourcing may be a consideration. You must first identify your organisation’s strengths and areas for improvement; this will help you determine which areas you would like to benchmark in. Once you have identified an area that you wish to focus on, the next stage is to gather information and data about how other best-in-class organisations tackle this issue.
