Today, a growing number of companies are following the lead of their premier competitors and of world‐class companies as a result of insights gained from benchmarking. This process involves identifying valid measures for comparing peformance among peer or other companies, ranking companies against these measures, investigating the practices that are the source of superior performance, and setting performance targets to exceed best‐observed practices.
