The Winners of the 9th annual Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) study have been announced by Teleos. Toyota is the overall Global MAKE Winner for the second year in a row.
According to the 2006 Global MAKE Report, European knowledge-driven organizations are failing to keep pace with their Asian and North American counterparts, and more organizations are relying on innovation for the competitive advantage.
The winners of the 2006 Global MAKE study, conducted by Teleos in association with The KNOW Network, are (in alphabetical order):
- Apple Computer
- BHP Billiton
- Buckman Laboratories
- Ernst & Young
- Honda Motor
- Novo Nordisk
- Samsung Group
- Tata Group
- Toyota Motor Corporation
Nice to see Buckman Labs on this list, as they are one of the classics in knowledge management. The only pharma company this time around is Nova Nordisk.
Comparing to the 2003 list, about half the companies are "new," which is a reasonable level of turnover in three years.
