So the purpose of this study is to propose a benchmarking process model addressing the key role of stakeholders in managing and measuring organization`s performance. This model presents a stakeholder-oriented view to performance improvement through benchmarking tool using value based concepts. Based on reviewing the literature, an exploratory approach is used to design the process model of benchmarking and it is supported and tested through a case application in an Iranian business school.
