The value of benchmarking?

In recent years the Funding Council has chucked decent amounts of money at trying to encourage institutions to undertake more benchmarking. Lots of universities seem to be pretty keen on talking about it too – everyone is always ‘benchmarking ourselves against peer institutions in the UK and overseas’.

But it’s rubbish really. One glance at the now wonderfully out of date site of the ‘English Universities Benchmarking Club’ tells you all you need to know about this dynamic cutting edge activity. I particularly like this photo of ‘Members of the Data Collection Group – hard at work’.
