 Benchmarking Partners Programme with EBM International

​​The Business Excellence Department (BED) at the Department of Economic Development, Dubai, has partnered with EBM International, to introduce the Benchmarking programme to the business community. This program endeavours to help Organizations adapt to market dynamics with the intent to enhance Productivity, Knowledge Management, Quality Improvement and overall Business Excellence through Benchmarking and Sharing of Best Practices.

Organizations that institutionalize benchmarking into their daily procedures find it is useful to create and maintain a database of best practices and the companies associated with each best practice. However, in the current regional scenario, there is no availability of such a service provider for corporates who wish to use this excellent method to share their best practices, or to learn from the best in class. Hence, this project aims at fulfilling this gap in the corporate world of this region, thereby giving a boost to Business Excellence in Dubai, as well as setting an example for other regions.

Benchmarking can prove to be a very powerful tool of Business Excellence and help a long way in improving an organisation's KPIs, and making not just incremental improvement, but also breakthrough improvements.


The "BED-EBM BP" program is meant to:

  •  Assist in setting appropriate benchmarks for organisations
  • Improve the level of Business Excellence Practices in the UAE; and
  • Help its Members improve their performance standards.


Participating members submit their data on relevant parameters to the "EBM Benchmarking Partners" data repository. The relevant data is used to generate trends and graphs. The data is also made available online in specific formats.
