Benchmarking is driven by the trends toward continuous improvement and quality control and facilitates the identification of best practices imported and adapted by organizations that wish to improve performance.

Finally, it offers an opportunity to reflect on a current preoccupation in evaluation literature: the impact of organizational context on the evaluation process.
