Why 2thinknow method?

Design of our unique city benchmarking process.

City benchmarked against others

Each city is bench marked against all others.

When designing benchmarking indicators we standardize across a global performance data-set. So all data is truly comparative — unlike surveys, web mash-ups, national stats or market research. And, something difficult for individual cities or researchers like you to do.

2thinknow city indicators

City indicators affordable, designed & sourced.

Benchmarking data is sourced in 2 ways. At the city indicator level — each data point. And the design of each standard indicator is soured from leading thinkers in economics, social science, sustainability, industry, transport,public policy and more. This standardization makes it very affordable, and of course, we offer custom indicators.

Measure the difficult.
