Using a "proprietary" business benchmarking process and business best practice implementation capabilities, AaronRichards can measure the under spend or investment that is normally ascribed to business process improvement opportunities as well as the over spend that is usually assumed from any process benchmarking efforts. What makes our value proposition most compelling is that nearly always the over spend that exists within an organization is significantly higher than the level of investment required to achieve operational excellence.

​Experience and research reveals a strong correlation between consistent use of business best practices and the ability to operate at lower cost and deliver greater value. How can business performance benchmarking help you pinpoint – and pursue – your organization's most substantial performance optimization opportunities?

Best practices benchmarking: Gain insight, take action

We assess each function's contribution to business value relative to its cost of delivering services. Our approach considers:

o   Qualitative measures such as alignment with business goals, level of technology integration achieved, or readiness to partner with customers and suppliers

o   Quantitative measures such as cost, cycle time, FTE effort, use of shared services, and application complexity

The result: a comprehensive, empirical comparison of your performance relative to both a statistical median of a meaningful peer group and world-class performers. You get:

o   Detailed comparisons of functional and process performance

o   Analyses of root causes of complexity and value of services delivered

o   Specific business best practices required to deliver process improvements and efficiencies

o   Targeted recommendations, presented in boardroom-level, results-oriented business terms
