At GoodPractice, we're big fans of research-based decision-making. So today on the show, we're speaking to Laura Overton from Towards Maturity.
Towards Maturity's annual benchmark gives you an opportunity to reflect on your department's achievements, then compares your performance with every other participating organisation. By doing so, you can come up with a plan for where to go next and learn what works for top performers.
If you'd like to share your thoughts on the show, you can find Laura on Twitter @LauraOverton, Peter @PeterCasebow, and Ross @RossGarnerGP.
You can also tweet @GoodPractice or @GoodpracticeAus.
