Frontier Analyst Case Studies

Benchmarking team and individual performance in R&D Laboratories Individual and group performance and reward is a nagging problem for many organisations. Individuals wish to be rewarded for their specific contribution to the business. However, in many cases they work in teams and team members feel, quite rightly, that they contribute to each other’s success. So how do you differentiate one from the other if that is what you want to do?

Using internal benchmarking with DEA as the measurement mechanism Dr. Mahen Tampoe, an independent management consultant, used Frontier Analyst to help to answer the difficult questions that a team of managers was faced with when considering individual and group performance and reward.
