  • Benchmarking is the improvement of performance through the recognition, understanding, and integration of better practices. For a variety of social, economic, political, and organizational reasons, however, the process of benchmarking was not embraced by the forensic community until Project FORESIGHT in the late 2000s. The FORESIGHT Project, with input from the forensic management community, created standard terminology and methods to collect management data. The mission of Project FORESIGHT is to help forensic managers measure their laboratory’s functions, preserve what works, and change what does not through cross-laboratory data comparisons to identify and examine processes, strategies, resources, and allocations at a detailed level.
