    1. 1. Benchmarking By:- VIDYA K. MBA-III sem ROLL NO.: 57
    2. 2. Benchmarking • Benchmarking is the process of continually searching for the best methods, practices and processes, and either adopting or adapting their good features and implementing them to become the “best of the best.” • How is benchmarking used? • Compare performance of an existing process against other companies’ best-in-class practices. • Determine how those companies achieve their performance levels. • Improve internal performance levels. Benchmarking is used for both comparison of performance as well as to understand the potential for improvement
    3. 3. Benchmarking Compliance  Policy regarding benchmarking protocol should be communicated to all employees involved, prior to contacting external organizations. Guidelines should address the following areas:  Misrepresentation – do not misrepresent your identity in order to gather information  Information requests – a request should be made only for information your organization would be willing to share with another company  Sensitive/proprietary information – avoid direct benchmarking of sensitive or proprietary information  Confidentiality – treat all information as confidential
    4. 4. Benchmarking Compliance  Avoiding inappropriate communication and contacts with competitors  Never propose, enter, or engage in a discussion related to any agreements with a competitor to fix prices, in terms or conditions of sale, costs, profit margins, or other aspects of the competition  Keep communications with competitors to a minimum – make sure there is a legitimate business reason for all such communications
    5. 5. Benchmarking Compliance  Consult with business legal counsel before initiating any contact with competitors regarding Six Sigma (or any other topic):  Benchmarking  Training of suppliers and customers – they may also be competitors
