Best Practice

Best practice is associated with seeking to identify the best processes that exist, usually in other organisations, which it is hoped, if adopted, will lead to better outcomes. For example, a small organisation may not have the economies of scale to achieve the same commercial outcomes in acquiring a category as a much larger enterprise, but they may be able to emulate the processes that the larger organisation uses and, in so doing, optimise their own outcomes.
