We work under rigidly controlled confidentiality and in highly competitive market environments.
There are few aspects of daily living that do not involve some type of constant measurement or comparison. Whether it is a report card, a test score, a scoreboard at a sporting event, mapping directions, following a recipe, the price of fuel or a loaf of bread, in business, in science, in medicine, in law, in politics, in sports, in school, you name it, we are always measuring it and comparing it to some other number or value. This comparison process enables people to rank their performance, make decisions, change or improve their behavior.
Businesses, of all sizes, compare performance data throughout their operations. Financial data, accounting, capital resource allocation, raw materials, purchasing, production/manufacturing, fabrication, supply chain, distribution, overhead, sales and marketing, human resources-all of these common business functions have a need to constantly measure performance. The terms cost comparison, metrics management, measuring performance, outcome measurement, benchmarking, standard deviation, peer grouping, qualitative/quantitative analysis, best practices, gap analysis, and benchmarking are all terms synonymous with knowing what you look like against your peers/competitors or simply how you are performing from one time period to another. The bottom line is that every organization, and everybody in it, is constantly measuring or being measured against a standard, a goal or a benchmark.
