Organizations need reliable ways to adjust business practices when work conditions change. A proven method of successfully learning and applying organizational best practices is through a process called benchmarking. This book introduces the benchmarking process by showing how to: 1) structure and conduct investigations, 2) analyze and measure current practices, as well as predict future changes in those practices, and 3) apply an action plan to put lessons learned into practice.
