Part C Benchmarking ????
  • What is Benchmarking
  • Benchmarking is the process of determining who is
    the very best, who sets the standard, and what
    that standard is. In baseball, you could argue
    that seven consecutive World Series Championships
    made the New York Yankees the benchmark.
  • If we were to benchmark "world conquest", what
    objective measure would we use to compare Julius
    Caesar to Adolph Hitler Gengis Khan to Napoleon?
    Which of them was the epitome, and why?
  • We do the same thing in business. Who is the best
    sales organization? The most responsive customer
    service department? The leanest manufacturing
    operation? And how do we quantify that standard?

  • Related Issues
  • Once we decide what to benchmark, and how to
    measure it, the object is to or Quality
    Improvement initiative.
  • What can I Benchmark figure out how the winner
    got to be the best and determine what we have to
    do to get there.
  • Benchmarking is usually part of a larger effort,
    usually a Process Re-engineering
  • Most of the early work in the area of
    benchmarking was done in manufacturing, like the
    example above. Now benchmarking is a management
    tool that is being applied almost anywhere. The
    Fortune Magazine article "Beat the Budget and
    Astound your CFO" outlines how Rank Xerox even
    applied benchmarking to their sales effort.
