GBN
Benchmarking 2030 Questionnaire for GBN Members

The GBN is embarking on a project to look at the future for Benchmarking. We are seeking inputs from existing, past and potential GBN Members. This project will take into account new technologies and social networking opportunities as well as issues such as global financial crises, governance, political, social and environmental trends and changing natural characteristics.

This project will answer the following questions - What will Benchmarking look like in 2030 – and in between? What are the tools, methodologies and technologies that Benchmarkers can use now to help organisations and economies to improve their outcomes? The main outcome will be to report on results of a  Roundtable as part of the next GBN AGM and Annual Conference.

The project will investigate the use of benchmarking and the future use of benchmarking techniques as well as the future for the GBN itself: It will connect Benchmarking experts with people from politics, science and companies and discuss the use and future use of benchmarking (e.g. survey, roundtable discussion, delphi study). Key parties to the project are Bruce Searles, Benchmarking Partnerships (project leader), Dr Robin Mann, bpir.com and Dr Holger Kohl, Fraunhofer. These three people will be doing considerable desktop research and preparing for their presentations and facilitated discussions as part of Roundtables at the next GBN AGM and Annual Conference.

A major part of the project is this qualitative survey of all GBN Members about the future for benchmarking, related to global megatrends. Members are encouraged to also ask specific clients or associates to participate in the survey.

Bruce will discuss with GBN Members like BestPrax Club India how they do Roundtables so that the GBN’s first Roundtables will be successful. The Roundtables will be designed to encourage all GBN Members to attend the next AGM. It is intended that a report of the outcomes from this Project will be published by the GBN in 2011.

By completing this survey you will receive a free copy of the results.

We look forward to receiving your response to the survey.
