The 2015 study marks the 23rd edition of the annual benchmarking analysis and the final year of the current three-year study cycle. The Big “I” initiated the Best Practices Study in 1993 as the foundation for efforts to improve agency performance and create higher-valued agencies. The survey and study of leading independent insurance agencies documents the business practices of successful agencies and urges others to adopt similar practices.
