1. Best Practice Report: Benchmarking

    November 6, 2018 by ahmed
    Benchmarking is a process to identify and implement best, better or new practices, with the objective of providing greater stakeholder value and obtaining a competitive advantage. It is a way of discovering the best performance and practices of other organisations, and then learning, adapting, creating, and implementing high-performing practices to produce superior performance results.

    benchmarking is the most effective and widely used way for companies of all sizes to improve performance and gain a critical advantage. Every organisation can learn and improve its business performance, no matter how strong its business model or end-of-year results. Even confirmed global leaders such as Xerox, Starbucks, and PepsiCo confirm the importance of benchmarking to staying one step ahead of their competition.

  2. Best Practice Report – Ideas Management System

    September 1, 2018 by ahmed

    Ideas management is a structured process of generating, capturing, organising, evaluating, and selecting ideas to improve your organisation. An ideas management system is the mechanism that enables organisations to perform all of this (and more) in an interconnected way. These days, most organisations use software to make the job easier. Since there are many different types of e-based ideas management systems available, it is important to choose one that meets your organisation’s needs. More sophisticated systems will monitor and prompt you when new ideas are submitted; promote collaboration; enable peer evaluation; be totally accessible from PCs, smartphones, and tablets; and, provide trends and metrics to recognise key contributors and measure outcomes.

    This report outlines the best practices research undertaken by BPIR.com in the area of ideas management systems. The best practices have been compiled under seven main headings. This new layout is designed to enable you to scan subjects that are of interest to you and your organisation, quickly assess their importance, and download relevant information for further study or to share with your colleagues.

  3. Best Practice Report – Paramedics and Paramedic Training

    August 25, 2018 by ahmed

    There are usually three levels of emergency medical technician (EMT) certification for the emergency medical services (EMS): entry, intermediate, and advanced. Paramedics (sometimes referred to as ambulance officers) possess the advanced (or highest) level, which can only be achieved after some 1200-1800 hours of training.
    Paramedic training needs to be extremely rigorous; these are, after all, the people who attend to the injured or ill at the scene of a medical emergency. In a rescue mission, it is often a paramedic who takes the lead, and who has the most responsibility for decision-making. For this reason, paramedic training generally comprises two major components. The first focuses on advanced life support as well as many of the functions of a basic EMT; these include performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), treating wounds, delivering babies, and undertaking patient assessments prior to arrival at the hospital. The second is crisis management, including strong leadership, keeping calm and composed, and being able to perform life-saving functions in stressful situations.

    This report outlines the best practices research undertaken by BPIR.com in paramedic training. The best practices have been compiled under seven main headings. This layout is designed to enable you to scan subjects that are of interest to you and your organisation, quickly assess their importance, and download relevant information for further study or to share with your colleagues.

  4. Best Practice Report – The Safe Use of Drones

    August 10, 2018 by ahmed

    A drone is the more familiar term for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an unmanned aircraft system (UAS). It refers to an aircraft of any size or type that is able to fly by itself without a pilot on board. The safe use of drones implies that, when flying a drone for any purpose, the user has to abide by the laws and guidelines of the country or city concerned. These guidelines can generally be obtained from the national aviation authority or local city council. This issue will also examine situations in which drones are used when it is considered too risky or difficult for a human pilot.

    This report outlines the best practices research undertaken by BPIR.com in the safe use of drones and how drones have enhanced safety. The best practices have been compiled under seven main headings. This layout is designed to enable you to scan subjects that are of interest to you and your organisation, quickly assess their importance, and download relevant information for further study or to share with your colleagues.
