Today, many firms use benchmarking e. The benchmarking process model adapted from Camp, Proposed Theoretical Framework and while organizational performance is the Research Questions dependent variable. Based on the preceding discussion, The model illustrated in Figure 2 the research questions were forwarded to combines four variables containing describe the relationship between factors that affect the success of variables.

Q1: Does the degree of The factors that affect successful organizational commitment have a benchmarking are the degree of significant relationship with the organizational commitment and prior benchmarking process?

This is due to process? However, out of the 36 local authorities under urban councils, Kuala Research Design Lumpur City Hall was excluded from this study because the Building In this study, local authorities were Department was separated recently from selected to fulfill the research objectives the Planning Department.

It was very costly to do a survey insufficient period in doing such an of the whole country and it would take a improvement program, a study of long time. Considering the shortage of benchmarking cannot be done for the resources, this study only selected the department. Thus, this study focuses local authorities under the urban councils only on 35 local authorities under urban for Peninsular Malaysia consisting of 5 councils.

The urban council was selected were included in the research population rather than the rural district councils is shown in the following table. In this study, structured On the other hand, the interviews were used in order to collect application of direct interviews definitely the data.

The assured that the questionnaire was structured interviews were conducted dedicated to the right person and that it using a set of questionnaire that were would be returned directly. Hence, the developed and reviewed by several time was accelerated in collecting the academicians and subject matter experts. Proposed Theoretical Framework Findings The unit of analysis in this study is an organization, consisting of Respondent Profile departments in the organization, which are headed by their respective directors.

A total of 35 interview sessions In order to measure organizational were held from March until June The officers that are Urban Council, consisting of City involved in benchmarking projects are Councils and Municipal Councils.

How to Build a Benchmarking Team

The respondents consisted of officers from the Building Department that were involved in benchmarking projects, of which there were 12 30 architects, 9 technicians, 8 Assistant five, was rather small to perform a good Head of Departments, 4 technical factor analysis.

The specify the required number of cases, but majority of them had six to ten years there is however, no absolute scientific working experience followed by eleven answer to this issue Edari, Nonetheless, the authors felt that conducting the factor analysis was better Validity than not performing any in order to give an indication of the construct validity of Validating and refining the entire each construct. To this end, trial of the factor analysis were not reliability and validity tests were carried satisfactory, as only seven of the eleven out following the sequence and approach constructs were shown to be taken by Saraph et al.

Problematic items were and Aspinwall The construct validity. A measure has results also revealed that more than 54 construct validity if it measures the percent of the variance of each set of theoretical construct or trait that it was items was accounted for by its respective designed to measure.

Despite this, certain whether the two factors that affecting items were deleted from the factors to successful benchmarking correlate with further improve their internal consistency.

Table 3 shows This provides evidence that all the the results of correlation analysis constructs have high internal consistency, between the antecedents and independent and are thus reliable. In essence, all the variable. Table 3. Pearson Correlation between antecedent variables with benchmarking process 1 2 3 1 Degree of 1. On the other hand, the result also organizational performance. Table 4 revealed that the prior benchmarking contains the results of this analysis. Pearson correlation between benchmarking process and organizational performance 1 2 1 Benchmarking 1.

This study was discovered the As benchmarking practice is still relationship between factors that new in Malaysian public sector affecting successful benchmarking with organization, specifically to local benchmarking process as well as authorities, the understanding of proper determined the relationship between benchmarking process is very limited.

Any of these believed to help improve performance, measures can serve as cues for how enhance responsiveness to customer efficient and effective an organization is needs, reduce cycle time, improve the at a particular point in time. This quality of the goods and services in their assessment can be on different levels of organizations, enhance job satisfaction analysis, from the total organization, to through employee empowerment, and one function, or at a unit or subunit level improve key business processes.

However, most financial managers would agree that organizations require positive all-payer total margins to replace buildings, acquire new technology, and so on. With sustained negative margins, it is unlikely that a hospital will be able to meet these needs and, on an absolute basis, a margin of -1 percent is poor financial performance.

A hospital with an all-payer total margin of -1 percent is in no less financial stress if 80 percent of its peers or 20 percent of its peers have similar margins.

The second limitation is the transitory nature of relative assessment. In essence, the goalposts change every year with relative assessment. Although performance relative to comparable institutions is informative, assessment of the financial health of the institution should be independent of how others are doing and unchanging over time.

For these reasons, the research team decided to augment current measures of relative performance medians with measures of absolute performance by developing benchmarks that are sample independent and time invariant. Essentially, benchmarking helps to identify best in class performance, provides a method to set aggressive targets for improvement, and identifies potential strategies on how to improve performance.

There are many challenges in benchmarking, but the research team was faced by two, in particular. First, although banks, bond rating agencies, industry associations, and other groups have various informal and formal targets for acceptable performance, there have been no financial benchmarks specifically for CAHs. CAHs vary considerably from most other acute care short term stay hospitals because they are limited to 25 or fewer inpatient beds, typically have low inpatient volume, and face other restrictions such as limits on length of stay as conditions of participation.

Second, a benchmark forces explicit specification of good performance, but the threshold where performance changes from average to good is often not obvious. For example, most people can probably agree that long-term losses are bad and that hospitals need profits to replace capital assets, acquire new technology, and so on. The indicator values at which performance changes from average to good are not consistently addressed in the financial literature.

These individuals have the overall responsibility for the financial performance and condition of their hospitals.This 5-phase and step process was created by Camp, R. There are two fundamental limitations to relative performance assessment. Finally, this paper also focuses on the methodology and data analysis of the study. This is Fischer , however, focusing because benchmarking directly affects on the US local government sector, the goals to which management commits suggests that benchmarking can develop Camp, This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

Previous experience of team has a cyclical nature which makes it members with benchmarking projects is continuously ongoing and emphasizes likely to influence project effectiveness.
