LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teleos has announced the Winners of the 13th annual Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) study. For the first time, Google has been named the overall Global MAKE Winner.
The Winners of the 2010 Global MAKE study, conducted by Teleos in association with The KNOW Network, are (in alphabetical order):
- Ernst & Young
- General Electric
- Infosys Technologies
- McKinsey & Company
- Royal Dutch Shell
- Tata Group
- Wipro Technologies
Rory Chase, managing director of Teleos, said: "These organizations have been recognized as global leaders in effectively transforming enterprise knowledge into wealth-creating ideas, products and solutions. Even during this period of global economic uncertainty, they are building portfolios of intellectual capital and intangible assets which will enable them to out-perform their competitors now and in the future."
A panel of Global Fortune 500 senior executives and internationally-recognized knowledge management/intellectual capital experts selected the 2010 Global MAKE Winners. The panel rated organizations against the MAKE framework of eight key knowledge performance dimensions which are the visible drivers of competitive advantage. The 2010 Global MAKE Winners have been recognized as leaders in:
- creating a corporate knowledge-driven culture
- developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership
- maximizing enterprise intellectual capital
- creating an environment for collaborative knowledge sharing
- organizational learning
- delivering value based on customer/stakeholder knowledge
- transforming enterprise knowledge into shareholder/stakeholder value
2010 Global MAKE study findings include:
- Knowledge-driven organizations significantly out-perform their competitors. For the ten-year period 2000-2009, the Total Return to Shareholders for the publicly-traded 2010 Global MAKE Winners was 11% -- nearly 3 times that of the Fortune 500 company median.
- Toyota failed to become a Global MAKE Winner for the first time in 9 years, and BP failed to become a Global MAKE Finalist for the first time since the Global MAKE studies began in 1998.
- The capabilities to manage talent and create new products/services/solutions are seen as competitive advantages across a wide range of business sectors.
