Performance analysis is used to help managers mitigate business risks and take advantage of business opportunities. Developing information by using tools such as benchmarking and gap analysis enables managers to engage in goal setting so business success can be achieved. However, it is difficult to set achievable goals without a clear understanding of the performance standards that apply to your specific industry.

Benchmarking

Benchmarking is one of the most utilized strategies for improving organizational efficiency through comparison. Erdil and Erbiyik (2019) define benchmarking as the act of comparing an organization’s practices against those of a considered industry leader, and using the information from the industry leader’s success to improve efficiency. Thus, benchmarking is a comparison with an established successful organization and adoption of the relevant practices to improve self. Large organizations such as Walmart, Amazon and Rakuten use benchmarking to consistently improve their effectiveness.

Industry standards, established through benchmarking in the most successful organizations, are critical for the goal-setting process. Executives model their objectives to align with those of the successful players. Thus, industry standards are used as the skeleton upon which success strategies are modelled. According to Erez (2015), people are likely to have a better sense of direction, higher energy and increased enthusiasm when they work towards highly-set goals. The high goals are set according to the industry standards and serve as motivation for success.

There are other types of information useful in setting performance goals. Perhaps the most critical information to consider is employee performance. According to Akinlabi, Dogo and Asikhia (2021), employee performance directly affects the organization’s success. Thus, any goals must factor in the employees’ ability to achieve them considering their documented performance levels. The authors further aver that employee performance can be enhanced through measures such as ranking and using a results-based system, but such methods also depend on the employees’ position, task and target.

Industry benchmarking is a tool for continuous improvement. Erdil and Erbiyik (2019) contend that the purpose of benchmarking is to compare against the best in the industry, identify and fill gaps to ensure improvement. Balamurugan and Poongodi (2016) suggest that industry benchmarking enables an organization to identify best practices by industry leaders, adopt and implement the practices to develop a competitive edge.

Discussion 5

For this discussion, use the following hypothetical scenario as the basis for your response:

Your business partner is strongly opposed to your proposal to charge your largest customers lower prices for your web-based services than what you charge your smaller customers. She is arguing it is unethical, unfair, and possibly illegal.

 

Address the following in your discussion post:

 

Make a case that both groups of customers will be satisfied with the deal and that this is a perfectly legal form of pricing in a business-to-customer relationship.

 

. What degree is this type of price discrimination?

. How will the plan increase revenue?

. Why will both groups of customers be satisfied with the deal?

. Why is this a legal form of pricing?

 

 

Discussion 6

 

We consider a sequential-move game in which an entrant is considering entering an industry in competition with an incumbent firm. There are several possibilities of how this sequential game will be played. We want to use the Froeb rule of “look ahead and reason back.”

 

Instructions

· Play and analyze the game. Can, and how does, the entrant succeed? Is the incumbent ever in control of this game? What is the Nash equilibrium?

. You may wish to review the old game known as Duopoly, as well as Antoine-Augustin Cournot, to help inform your post.

Descriptive Statistics For Data Within The Organization

There is often the requirement to evaluate descriptive statistics for data within the organization or for health care information. Every year the National Cancer Institute collects and publishes data based on patient demographics. Understanding differences between the groups based upon the collected data often informs health care professionals towards research, treatment options, or patient education.

Using the data on the “National Cancer Institute Data” Excel spreadsheet, calculate the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity groups. Refer to your textbook and the topic Resources, as needed, for assistance in with creating Excel formulas.

Provide the following descriptive statistics:

1. Measures of Central Tendency: Mean, Median, and Mode

2. Measures of Variation: Variance, Standard Deviation, and Range (a formula is not needed for Range).

3. Once the data is calculated, provide a 150-250 word analysis of the descriptive statistics on the spreadsheet. This should include differences and health outcomes between groups.

APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
