Benchmarks

A benchmark is a point of reference for a measurement. The term originates from the chiselled horizontal marks that surveyors made into which an angle-iron could be placed to bracket (bench) a levelling rod, thus ensuring that the levelling rod can be repositioned in the exact same place in the future.

Use this category as a resource to better understand what benchmarking is and how it can be used in your analysis to improve your businesses performance.
