sales time benchmarking special research report Photo by
As the software industry grows more competitive, sales departments have begun to play an increasingly strategic role.

Especially in high-growth companies, maintaining paycheck parity is often as critical as staying current with product technology and features. But what is the ...
is the process of comparing one's business processes and performance metrics to industry bests and/or best practices from other industries. Dimensions typically measured are quality, time, and cost.

Benchmarking involves management identifying the best firms in their industry, or any other industry where similar processes exist, and comparing the results and processes of those studied (the "targets") to one's own results and processes to learn how well the targets perform and, more importantly, how they do it. The term benchmarking was ...

Peer Benchmarking for Owners of Thrift and Second-Hand Stores
A down economy does wonders for people’s spending habits. Folks start remembering that dollars actually have value, and that when money is hard to come by, every dollar matters. That’s good for thrift stores, consignment shops and second hand clothing stores; it’s not so good for the smart shoppers who have been prowling the thrift shop aisles for years, paying pennies on the dollar for clothes that might have been worn twice. That means you’re in a time of opportunity—a chance to grow your business! But: • What’s the best way to make sure your thrift shop is noticed—that it stands out from the crowd? • What’s the best way to ... market research, surveys and trends

Benchmarking with best practices outside industry works
Xerox had a problem in 1984. Its name was synonymous with copiers, but Japanese competitors like Canon and Sharp were selling ‘Xerox machines’ at a lower price than Xerox itself could afford. How were they able to do it? Like any good manufacturer, Xerox had disassembled and deconstructed the products made by its competitors to check their parts. It turned out they were all of comparable quality and there were no differences in engineering. The answer lay not in the machine itself but the process by which it was made. A civil engineer from Cornell with a PhD in logistic from Penn State, Robert Camp was part of a six-member team ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
More Refined In 2009
Sometimes looking at statistics is a bit like looking at a Rorschach test—what you see depends a bit on whether you’re a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person. No doubt about it, RIA assets surged last year after the equity markets bounced back from their profound March 2009 nadir. The 456 advisories participating in Financial Advisor magazine’s 2010 RIA survey saw their total assets balloon 23.3% in 2009, to $307.3 billion from $249.2 billion the year before, a growth trend that almost mirrored exactly the S&P 500’s surge for the year. And 210 of the firms in the survey saw assets grow even more than that: 50 of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Looking for benchmarking relating to allocations of corporate ...
I've used allocations in the general ledger system, but I'm sure you could do financial reporting allocations just as well. The determining factor would be the benefit the company gets from using one method vs. the other method. General ledger allocations allow you to take individual units/pools/departments and see all the costs assigned to them. With a financial reporting allocation you become responsible to add the factor(s) to the general ledger data. As far as the allocation base, I've been very involved in government contract accounting, using CAS and FAR, and within that environment we look at the ...
