In September 2016 APQC conducted its biannual survey  of over 300 respondents across industries, functions, and geographies to dig deeper and find out what value is being derived from benchmarking. The survey explored organizations’ benchmarking resources, practices, goals and measures for benchmarking, and what characteristics of benchmarking improve the effectiveness of key business activities, such as strategic planning.
