Benchmarking is a Business Excellence tool for finding, adapting and implementing outstanding practices in order to achieve superior performance.  Benchmarking comprises prioritisation of strategic improvement needs (the why), measurement (the what—the Benchmarks) and practices (the how—the doing of benchmarking).  Re-measure tracks performance improvement.
