BEST BUSINESS PRACTICES SERVICES METHODOLOGY
Identification Of Partners
BBP partners are identified through a variety of sources including national, international, and industry sector award winners, best practice databases, polls, noted industry leaders, and implementers. JJA CONSULTANTS has contact with over 800 organizations annually that serve as benchmarks in various business sector service areas. Partners participate in the BBP study by providing organizational performance data and partners then have access to the study results.
Study Design Board
Our company’s specialists finalize the structure of the BBP study and design the instruments. Selected study participants are invited to provide input to the topic areas that will be the focus of the study.
Study Data Collection and Analysis
JJA CONSULTANTS conducts the BBP study by collecting, entering, analyzing, comparing, and evaluating data from all study partners. Qualitative and quantitative data is collected from study participants through a variety of methods including telephone and in-person surveys, focus groups, and interviews.
Development of Report And Database
Our company develops unique databases for comparative analysis and execution of structured queries. We also provide an executive summary and a detailed report for each study partner. The report contains demographic data, qualitative and quantitative analysis of BBP data, identified best practices, and conclusions.
Dissemination of Results
Our company disseminates the results to each of the study partners. Presentations of the results are delivered to the partners, their leadership teams, and other stakeholders according to the level of partnership purchased. We also offer performance gap closure consultation and performance improvement services to study partners at the Gold and Platinum levels. Additional usage rights may include the right to distribute the results internally for training and performance improvement.
Protection of Intellectual Property
JJA CONSULTANTS protects the intellectual property of all study partners. Partner identities can be protected through data coding. In some cases, when confidential information is shared, study partners may be required to sign confidentiality agreements regarding the release of selected data and information.
