Benchmarking for Best Practices in the Public Sector: Achieving Performance Breakthroughs in Federal, State, and Local Agencies

Benchmarking for Best Practices in the Public Sector: Achieving Performance Breakthroughs in Federal, State, and Local Agencies

By

For leading companies in the private sector, benchmarking has become a major catalyst for change: a key tool for gathering information from competitors and process leaders, as well as from within. Benchmarking for Best Practices in the Public Sector is a unique practical guide that shows public officials and administrators at all levels of government how to identify best practices and implement them in their organizations. The authors go beyond abstract concepts to bring benchmarking to life, with real case examples from federal, state, and local governments—from a county fire department to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. They show how benchmarking methods have been adapted to the unique needs of the public sector and describe the tangible benefits gained by public agencies that have applied these techniques. Offering detailed how-to advice along with checklists, flowcharts, sample forms, a resource directory, and other tools to help managers take action quickly, the authors demonstrate:What benchmarking is and how it differs in the public sector
Six criteria for selecting a program or process to be benchmarked
Ways to generate support and ideas for a benchmarking project
How to select and work with a benchmarking partner
How to plan a strategy for using the project's findings
And many more techniques for making benchmarking activities helpful
