The Competitiveness Review© (CR) is a nationally recognized assessment tool that provides a systematic evaluation of a business. It measures operational performance and compares against globally competitive criteria. The assessment has 3 components: Online questionnaire, on-site assessment through a facilitated discussion with the leadership team, and a report-out session based on the online and onsite assessment results. Each CR covers topics such as sales, competitors, suppliers, order entry, operations, quality, continuous improvement, and innovation. The assessment reviews systems, not individual performance. This paper describes the CR components, processes, and provide examples of results obtained in Louisiana through applying the CR tool. The paper concludes with a discussion on how the CR results can be used to drive program development in two and four-year institutions of higher education.
