Agrohub BM will talk about increasing the efficiency of agricultural companies through benchmark analysis on LFM

Benchmark analysis is a new tool for increasing efficiency for Ukrainian agricultural companies. Agrohub BM was the first in the country to benchmark competitors to find the best industry practices. Yulia Poroshenko, founder of Agrohub platform, McKinsey alumna, and Alex Kolbasynskyy, head of BM practice and partner of Agrohub platform, will talk at the X International Conference “Effective Management of Agricultural Companies” LFM about how benchmarking works, what is required from the agricultural producers to participate in the study and what results it gives.

Cases will be examined on the influence of the geographical factor on productivity and profitability, on the effective replacement cycle of equipment and the optimal balance between workload and compensation for employees. Yulia and Alexey will share what industry practices Agrohub BM observed in the first wave of research conducted in February-July 2019. It covered five agricultural holdings — Kernel, IMC, Cygnet, LNZ, MHP — and a total land bank of 1 million hectares. LFM participants will see examples of benchmark analytics in 4 categories of indicators: equipment, human resources, agricultural efficiency and precision farming.
