Phase Two: Analysis (4) (5) Find out how far behind you are; known as the `competitive gap' Decide on the levels of performance that you wish to reach in the future The ability to carry out analysis, Rank Xerox believe, is dependent upon the quality of the information collected as a result of phase one. The main emphasis is upon eliciting objective data.

Phase Five: Maturity There are no steps to this phase. The objective is to have created an organisational environment where, according to Cross and Leonard (1994), the process of benchmarking has become fully integrated into all the practices of the organisation. In effect, and as Rank Xerox have shown by their experience, every person or team is continously striving to create ways to improve what it does on a 37 Benchmarking in Construction day-to-day basis. The result of this combination of effort, and it should be stressed culture change, is to allow organisations such as Rank Xerox not only to regain market position, but also, by continuously focusing on customer satisfaction, to be regarded as one of the `best in their class'.
