Benchmark Projects

With our custom benchmark tool, organisations can create specific benchmark projects to measure key performance indicators and drive innovation and improvements. Our solution can track project performance, assess strengths and weaknesses and identify opportunities for efficiencies. This is particularly important for projects that are subject to external evaluation.

Benchmarking Projects 2

Benchmark Projects: what can you benchmark?

Benchmarking Projects can be developed for any purpose, program or strategy including:

Government or Council projects

Track project progress against milestones; obtain resident and/or business feedback across multiple programs and strategies; measure the continuous annual improvement of local programs; and establish best practice principles across all council areas.

Government programs and incentives

Build benchmarking to determine optimal program performance; run internal benchmarking projects across departments to compare performance; undertake reviews with key stakeholders to increase engagement; and conduct annual project/program reviews to showcase positive results and identify areas for improvement.

Long-term complex projects

Undertake complex benchmarking across multiple functions to determine industry trends and concerns; run performance benchmarking across agencies to drive process improvements; deliver detailed reports highlighting internal strengths and weaknesses of departments; and engage with residents and businesses via obtaining project/program feedback to improve success.

How does it work?

Whilst each project is unique, we go through the following steps with all clients to build their custom benchmark project.

1. Define your goals

Setting your project strategy is the first step to ensure we measure and track your priorities. During this process we develop your custom benchmark metrics.

2. Create your online application

The online application is built to enable your participants to both complete the required information. This portal can be branded with your logo and linked via your own website desired.

3. Collect participant data

Collecting data is vital for all benchmarking projects. Our intuitive tool ensures this process is hassle free for all participants.

4. Data quality assurance

We check all data collected to create high confidence reporting for all clients. If required, our team can also support with data input.

5. Analyse results

The online application can be used to analyse all project results. This platform can also be used by participants to benchmark their results against the group and/or industry (if applicable).

6. Export Custom Reports

The final custom report can be exported at any time from the online application. The project team can add commentary and analysis to this report if required. Further, deeper insights can be gained via exporting data as excel, word or pdf and running report variations.

What’s included in our Benchmarking Packages?

We have a range of reporting tools available to suit any benchmarking projects. Each benchmark project is tailor built with our clients to develop the optimal solution. All options include features for both the project manager and project participants if desired.
