The authors note that benchmarking is the systematic process of searching for best practices, innovative ideas, and highly effective operating procedures that lead to superior performance. Best practice benchmarking, considering the experience of others, is a fundamental approach to managing in today's work world. New and innovative methods are important because organizations must look outside to find the best practices in order to motivate their organization to meet the highest standards possible. Included in the appendix are worksheets that can be copied in order to integrate benchmarking into the organization.

This paper is an exploration of how sensemaking patterns amongst management groups influence the actual practices of strategising over extended periods of time. Using an eight-year longitudinal case study of a single strategic issue, (a strategic marketing innovation in a division of a global financial services company), the paper aims to advance the work of Gioia and Chittipeddi (1991) by exploring the micro-processes of sensegiving and other sensemaking patterns amongst management groups. In the first order analysis, four different patterns of sensemaking are identified: sensegiving, fragmented sensemaking, polarised sensegiving and communal sensemaking. In the second order analysis the paper explores deeper explanations for each of the patterns of the sensemaking processes by examining contextual variables and triggers for each sensemaking pattern. Finally, a phased model is presented for discussion which links the four sensemaking patterns together over time and in so doing, identifies a number of theoretical issues in the strategising process such as the dynamic patterns of actions and interactions between senior and middle managers, the integration of micro-politics and sensegiving patterns, the study of social action in sensemaking beyond strategic conversations and communications, and the dynamic nature of consensus and diversity.

This publication contains a summary report of the presentations and discussions held at the Seminar. It has been prepared by the Rapporteurs, Jack Martens, a consultant based in the United States, and Alexander Dynkin, Deputy Director of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) in Moscow. It also includes a background document prepared by the Russian Ministry of Industry, Science and Technologies on the role of the state in creating a favourable environment for innovation. The reports show that, in spite of considerable achievements in the recent past in building the groundwork for Russias innovation system, the innovation climate still needs drastic improvements. Comprehensive institutional reforms are required, including in areas outside the remit of policy makers in technology and innovation. A lot can be learned, in that respect, from the experience of other countries.
