Invitation from the Global Benchmarking Network and Massey University

Dr. Robin Mann of COER and was kind enough to comment on my previous entry and extend an invitation to the readers of this blog. I would like to relay this to you, thank him, and encourage you to participate.

From Dr. Mann:

"The Centre for Organisational Excellence Research (COER), Massey
University, on behalf of the Global Benchmarking Network ( is conducting research to identify the current status of business improvement tool use worldwide. To assist with this important research we encourage you or a representative from your organisation to complete the electronic survey at

It will take between 5 to 45 minutes of your time dependent on your use of
benchmarking. Those that do not use benchmarking only complete Sections 1 and 2 of the survey – this will only take 5-10 minutes of your time.

The person completing the survey should have a good understanding of the business improvement tools being used within your organisation. The survey is relevant to small organisations from one or two people to large multinational organisations.

The findings from the research will help to provide an understanding of the use of business improvement tools worldwide and how use varies from country to country. Already there has been over 400 responses.

In return for completing the survey you will be sent a copy of the findings and given one month’s FREE access to (a benchmarking and best practice website resource).

In addition, one lucky winner that completes all sections of the survey will be invited to the GBN’s 3rd International Benchmarking Conference, Budapest, Hungary – 9/10 October 2008, Conference fee and accommodation for three nights will be paid by the GBN.

Thank you for your participation."
