'The important strength of this book is that it takes the fear out of the reader of a perceived complex system of measurement methodology of benchmarking. The workshop format provides empirical grounding of concepts and methods. Another good aspect of the book is that it prepares the reader in the understanding of the logistical imperatives, the requirement of financial, the time, and the leadership commitments for a benchmarking study' - Benchmarking: An International Journal

As schools struggle with the complex tasks of restructuring, they often look to other schools to find models for change. This `benchmarking' process is the theme of this book. By using the strategies presented, school leaders will be able to clearly define their specific restructuring problems, identify what they need to learn from other schools and adapt the solutions to their unique contexts.
