Now that it’s officially summertime, we’re excited to announce that MREB’s 2012 Resource and Organizational Benchmarking survey is open for participation! Last year’s benchmarking results showed several interesting trends, including continued flat budgets, yet an overall optimistic outlook for budgets in 2012.
This year, we’ve streamlined the survey to make it shorter and easier to complete. But as always, the survey will measure key metrics such as:
- Budget level
- Resource allocation by project type
- Organizational structure
- Staffing levels
- Services provided
- Vendor spend
This one-of-a-kind budget and spend benchmarking service is an exclusive benefit of MREB membership, as it collects unique data to help you compare your resource allocation against peers and to understand emerging trends within the function. It can also be valuable when explaining budget or staffing proposals to senior executives.
As a participant, you will receive a detailed custom report in time for the 2013 budget planning cycle, including an overview of the unit’s services, staffing, and budget. Depending on the size of the specific data set, we can cut data for company size, geography, budget, industry, function, or business unit. We’ll also create an online, interactive tool that lets you query the database directly to obtain the most frequently requested benchmarks.
To receive your custom report by August, don’t forget to complete the survey by June 29th.
