Participating in the Juran Benchmarking program has enabled us able to justify our cost levels. The best thing about Benchmarking is that one gets a clear view of your own company’s performance. It is like looking into a mirror, it starts with yourself, allows you to understand the gaps in your performance compared to the other benchmarkers and enables you to learn from others best practices.
In this global economy where the change is constant, we need to explore and understand what’s happening in the surrounding marketplace for the continuation of our business. To do so, we benchmark ourselves among well-known companies through Juran Benchmarking.
