From the Back Cover:

This is a how-to book which complements and expands upon prior books on benchmarking. It's about the benchmarking experience at IBM's Rochester, Minnesota site, which is responsible for product development and U.S. manufacturing of intermediate computer systems. Benchmarking is an important element in IBM's total quality management system. IBM Rochester was a 1990 winner of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Modern-day benchmarking is a technique for comparing an organization's processes, products or services with the world's best. It aids the discovery of ways to do things faster, better, and at less cost. It's a technique that you can put to work in your organization, with the help of this book.
