APQC Custom Benchmarking

The cost of not knowing
Good decision making starts with credible data. How do you know where to focus your
improvement initiatives without trustworthy information to back up your decisions?
Businesses run the risk of false starts and misdirected effort by not taking the time to focus on
the facts and measure the current state of their performance. The cost of not knowing can be

reduced or eliminated through effective benchmarking. By using benchmarking to know,

you open the door of opportunity for breakthrough improvement and long-term success. The
