Strategic Impact & Leadership: Insights from the Dutch Communication Management Benchmark

Consultancy GKSV and Delft University of Technology recently launched the Dutch Communication Management Benchmark. Over 100 (!) communication managers from medium sized to large organisations operating in the Netherlands participated in the Benchmark. 

The Benchmark helps communication managers to set the next step in strategic communication impact and leadership. The outcomes present inspiring insights and ideas to further develop the communications function. It moreover provides the opportunity to compare organisations with the benchmark average and with specific peers. For more information visit:
