Benchmarking: An International Journal (BIJ) is the first journal to examine a radical business process that is revolutionizing established practice and performance and is big news for companies committed to total quality programmes.[1] Its enthusiastic reception by many prominent business figures has created high levels of interest in a technique which promises big rewards for co-operating partners. Yet, like total quality itself, it must be understood in its proper context, and implemented single mindedly to be effective. This journal helps companies decide if benchmarking is right for them and shows them how to go about it successfully.

BIJ is designed as both a study of techniques and a practical manual, so that companies acquire important background knowledge as well as the information they need to instigate their own benchmarking programme. Its content is overseen and written by a distinguished international editorial board and demonstrates a broad understanding of all the issues involved.[2]

Topics covered in BIJ include:

  • Benchmarking as part of total quality
  • Case histories
  • Practical applications
  • Research reports
  • Test scenarios
  • The theory of benchmarking

BIJ will be of interest to academics and students studying quality and related areas, consultants to organizations looking at total quality, and senior company personnel in business and industry responsible for the development and managing of total quality programmes.
