Benchmarking Workshop

We completed our first Benchmarking Key Performance Indicators Workshop yesterday and are working through the results and reports. We used this workshop as a market research project to test drive this new process and assessment.

There will be a need for us to run a second workshop some time in September to test our adjustments. Same workshop, slightly improved (hopefully). We won’t finalize the date until mid-August, but please click here for more preliminary information.
