What best practices or service innovations have become more prevalent in the delivery of the corporate planning and reporting function?
Benchmarking template for the planning and reporting function
The corporate planning and reporting benchmarking tool (15 slides in PowerPoint) provides a summary work plan and template to help compare the delivery and practices of the planning and reporting function with those of other jurisdictions/ organizations.
The key benchmarking steps are:
- Identify potential organizations to participate in the benchmarking
- Prepare profiles of the benchmark organizations
- Compare delivery models and practices by dimension/criteria
- Summarize the results of the comparisons.
Dimensions/criteria specific to planning and reporting are provided to help compare with planning and reporting delivery models and practices of other jurisdictions (see preview image chart).
Also included are examples of planning and reporting common/best practices under each dimension as well as five level capability maturity descriptions to help situate your organization relative to common/best practices found in the benchmark organizations.
After you acquire the tool, you will receive an email with a link to download the template (15 slides) in a PowerPoint editable format, as well as the Benchmarking Guide (8 pages) in a Word format.
