A best practice is a method, process, activity, incentive, or reward that is believed to be more effective at delivering a particular outcome than any other technique, method, or process, when applied to a particular condition or circumstance. They are the processes, practices, and systems identified in public and private organizations that performed exceptionally well and are widely recognized as improving an organization's performance and efficiency in specific areas.
