Benchmarking Course in Singapore
Benchmarking Course in Singapore
Benchmarking is the method of comparing business processes and performance metrics against industry bests and best practices from other companies. Dimensions of benchmarking that are typically measured are time, quality and cost.
Benchmarking is a way of determining what the most excellent performance that can be achieved, be it in a particular company, by a competitor or by an entirely different industry is. This information can then be used to recognise gaps in an organisation’s processes to achieve a competitive advantage.
To put it, benchmarks are the “what,” and benchmarking is the “how.” It is important to note that benchmarking is not an immediate or easy process tool. Before undertaking a benchmarking opportunity, it is essential to have a careful understanding of the business guidelines. Some organisations have strict guidelines as to what information can be collected, and whom to contact to get that information. Depending on the size of the organisation, practitioners may be amazed at what is already available in-house.
The Benchmarking Process
Benchmarking requires looking outward (outside a particular business, company, industry, region or country) to study how others accomplish their performance levels, and to surmise the processes they use.
Benchmarking helps explain the processes behind a great performance. When lessons learned from a benchmarking exercise are applied appropriately, they facilitate improved performance in critical functions within an organisation or critical areas of the business.
The application of benchmarking involves four key steps:
- Understand in detail existing business processes.
- Examine the business processes of others.
- Compare one’s business performance with another business.
- Implement the necessary steps to close the performance gap.
Benchmarking must not be regarded as a one-off exercise. To be effective, benchmarking must become an essential part of an ongoing improvement process, the goal being to keep abreast of ever-improving best practice.
This Benchmarking workshop is ideal for anyone who would like to gain a strong grasp and improve their Benchmarking.
