Resources – Financial Benchmarking

Financial Benchmarking is most often used in order to evaluate performance by focusing on one or more particular indicators. This could be cost per unit, productivity, defects per unit, or otherwise. This measurement of performance is then compared to other firms within their industry. Benchmarking is most commonly an on-going process in which firms continuously seek the improvement of their practices. Benchmarking should basically be treated as an on going structured approach to improving your organisation’s performance and not a one-off measure. The aim is to produce a learning experience, where best practice can be incorporated within your organisation. Financial benchmarking in schools is about more than just effectively managing the budget. It is about achieving best value; the Government policy designed to further continuous improvement in locally provided services, including education. Best value in schools means that resources should be applied to best effect. It means more that just picking the cheapest option. Financial benchmarking can help schools to challenge the way they do things. Better use of finite resources can have a direct impact on educational outcomes, for example, in progressing towards targets.
