Benchmark Your Incubator Management Practices –
and Access Tools for Continuous Improvement

As a dedicated incubator manager, you are always looking for ways to enhance your program's effectiveness and efficiency. This online benchmarking tool makes it easier for you to do that in the privacy of your own office.

This simple benchmarking survey helps you compare your incubation program's management with those of your peers and with NBIA-accepted best practies. In just 10 minutes, you can:

  • Evaluate your incubation program's performance in 10 best practice areas
  • Discover your incubation program's areas of excellence
  • See where your program can improve
  • Compare -- in confidence -- your program's practices with others
  • Learn more about best practices and how to achieve them

This also is a continuous improvement tool. Check your results as often as you like to see how your scores change as more managers complete the tool. And you can repeat the assessment as you incorporate new best practices into your operations.

This free product has been made available through the support of the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Appalachian Regional Commission.
