Benchmarking — the ongoing process of measuring your organization against leaders — can help stimulate innovation, increase your impact, decrease your costs, raise money, inspire your staff, impress your donors, engage your board and sharpen your mission.
Written primarily for community-based organizations, this workbook-style primer has much to offer a development, communications and marketing or alumni office (particularly at smaller institutions) that does not yet have a benchmarking program in place.
Loaded with checklists, charts, sample material and worksheets, this hardworking book can help you set up a structure for measuring outcomes.
