Models for the Transfer of Best Practices: Self-Assessment



Classic Content

The facilitated transfer of best practices is a structured approach for identifying and replicating successful processes and methods across an organization’s various business units, groups, and/or locations. In most cases, the goal of transfer is to close performance gaps and bring similar units up to a consistent level of high performance. APQC’s research has identified three common models to enable the transfer of best practices:

  1. the create, validate, and disseminate transfer model;
  2. site-to-site transfer via communities and networks; and
  3. the self-assessment transfer model.

This article describes the self-assessment model, in which business units and sites measure themselves against established best practices and develop plans to attain best-practice status.
