TIP 6 - Benchmarking

Quality; Quality Award
​The sixth tip in the "7 Tips for Performance Improvement" series is benchmarking.

Compare yourself to the best to be the best. Benchmarks are processes and results that represent best practices and best performance for similar activities, inside or outside of your organization. Understanding world-class performance allows an organization to effectively set targets and stretch goals for performance excellence. Benchmarking makes results more relevant and provides leaders with actionable data to learn and grow the organization. 
Learn more about the importance of benchmarking by working on your 2023 National Quality Award application. Don't forget to submit your 2023 intent to apply by 8pm ET November 15, 2022.

Based on the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program, the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program helps you to evaluate your organization's strengths and opportunities, identify critical areas for improvement, and implement a plan to be stronger and more resilient than ever before.
