Comparisons

Definition:

"Comparisons" refer to establishing value of results by relationship to similar or equivalent measures. Comparison can be made to results of competitors, industry averages, or best-in-class organizations. The maturity of the organization should help determine what comparisons are most relevant. "Comparisons" also refer to your performance relative to appropriate comparisons and/or benchmarks

Features:

- Relevance

- Consistency

Questions to be asked in analyzing comparisons:

- Are comparisons provided for a few, some, or many to most figures? (Applicants do not need to provide a comparison for every figure.)

- Are comparisons provided for the most important results?

- Are the comparisons provided relevant?

- Are the comparisons with local, industry leaders, or best-in-class organizations?
