Benchmark Studies

Keeping your business ahead of the competition

Benchmark Studies

The difference between a good business and a great business is in the ability of its leaders to adapt quickly and make the right decisions about future strategy. Key to this is having credible information about how your business compares to your competitors and to exemplars in other sectors you are trying to emulate. 

Our dedicated Insight & Talent Analytics team provide these Benchmark Studies. We help you gather more detailed, data-led insights about the markets in which you operate and your position in those markets. We do so through a combination of analysis of publicly available data and conversations with the experts in those markets.

By delivering unique, comprehensive studies, our benchmarking service will show your place in the market and the steps you need to take to become industry leaders.

How talent research supports benchmark studies

If you’re planning on taking your business to the next level, you first need to be able to benchmark yourself against the competition.
Our range of Insight & Talent Intelligence services can identify areas where your business excels, and where improvements are required, we can then create tactical and strategic roadmaps to help you meet your business goals.
Whether it’s discovering how your competitor’s internal teams are structured or what technology is being deployed by them and best in class organisations in other sectors, our insight services can help.
By providing intelligence, we enable you to create tactical plans which focus on immediate improvements and strategic roadmaps requiring long-term investment. This can help you determine where you currently stand both against your immediate competitors as well as global exemplars and the steps you need to take to gain a competitive edge in these rapidly changing times.

Our Approach

Our team of highly experienced and professional consultants and researchers will build a bespoke benchmarking programme.

We do this for clients who want to benchmark their business against regional or global markets, using our extensive in-house language capabilities to ensure our primary research is always gathered by a native speaker. 

We gather, sift, and evaluate intelligence from the public domain while collecting opinions and perceptions from online sources and databases. We then add the third dimension of personal market insight from those involved in the market in focus.

This allows us to accurately assess the structures, opportunities and trends in each market, to find relevant information which helps you understand where you currently rank against your competitors. We then compare and interpret the resulting intelligence, to provide your business with unique and unparalleled competitor insight.

Our work has allowed us to form partnerships with some of the most influential and respected businesses across the world, preparing and supporting them through times of transformational change. If you’re looking to benchmark your business against your competitors, you can rely on Armstrong Craven to deliver unparalleled insight and intelligence.
