What is Yardstick?

Yardstick is a suite of benchmarking tools that delivers "need to know" information for your business to inform your decision making and improve your service delivery. Yardstick projects largely encompass parks, facilities and roads.

An organisation's participation in Yardstick will ensure that it can compare and measure performance against others in the industry, providing a proven and sustainable delivery model with opportunities for benchmarking globally.
