4.) Applying Quality Management Principles To Wellness: Benchmarking

There’s an old saying: "Don’t reinvent the wheel." When it comes to work, that reminder is particularly appropriate. Instead of starting from scratch, find someone who has already done what you are trying to do and is doing it well and learn from them. That is the principle behind "benchmarking:" The process of finding someone who ranks among the best at doing a particular activity, finding out how they do it, and applying those lessons to what you want to accomplish.
