 Case studies
 Best practices
 Share common issues/challenges faced
 How did they do that??
 Performance measurement (PIs)

…what can I learn from others?
www.salga.org.za
Process Benchmarking
Cities Working Groups
 Established for each module
 How are issues addressed?
 Specific topics
 Track PIs and discuss drivers of performance
• “I thought that I was the only one grappling with this issue. It is comforting to
hear that others are having the same problems.”
• “I have been trying to do calculations comparing our performance with other
cities but have been unsure as to whether I have interpreted numbers
correctly. Now that I have met my peers I can just call them and check next
time.”
…DM and LM Peer Groups?

Metric Benchmarking
…where is the data?
www.salga.org.za
MBI Approach
• Benchmarking is like
water…flexible and able to
adapt to meet needs and
gain most traction
• What is working?
• What is not working?
e.g. Track PIs that are useful
and that you feel will assist
you in understanding and
improving your performance
“Be like water…” – Bruce Lee

What’s In It For Me?
People give time to things for several reasons:
• Those things are important to them
• Those things are habits
• Those things are what they believe they should do
 We want/need municipalities to stand up and say:
• I want to improve…I want us to be the best!!
…BUT we are not there yet….
