Page 1 of 8
Introduction
The objective of our research study is to employ a team-based approach to identifying problem opportunity statements, effectively conduct generic benchmarking research, identify successful and unsuccessful generic benchmarking companies and recognize potential solutions to our problem opportunity statement and end-state goals. The design of the study includes peer-reviewed references, utilization of a generic benchmarking worksheet and application of the Global Communication's situation analysis. The team's approach to the research methods was to research the generic benchmarking information individually and incorporate our greatest findings into one manuscript. Furthermore, the team-based research approach will provide enhanced solutions from four different perspectives and allow us to be more successful in our research, generic benchmarking methodologies and solution identification for Global Communications.
