A continual improvement process, also often called a continuous improvement process (abbreviated as CIP or CI), is an ongoing effort to improve products, services, or processes. These efforts can seek "incremental" improvement over time or "breakthrough" improvement all at once. Delivery (customer valued) processes are constantly evaluated and improved in the light of their efficiency, effectiveness and flexibility.

Results benchmarking - comparing the performance of a number of organisations providing a similar service. In the public sector, this technique can serve to allow the public to judge whether their local provider makes effective use of its resources, compared to other similar providers. In the absence of the competitive pressures which operate in the private sector, this can provide a significant incentive to improve efficiency

Benchmarking is a process of comparison between the performance characteristics of separate, often competing organisations intended to enable each participant to improve its own performance in the marketplace. Its objectives are to obtain a clearer understanding of competitors and of customers' requirements.

The benchmarking concept is fundamentally one by which different players share details of their performance in delivering services, to allow best criteria to be established. This text aims to help managers in the public sector develop performance criteria in areas where they are expected to be efficient, and where it has been previously difficult to establish a yardstick for achievement.
