Over the years, we have conducted more than 25 major research studies showcasing best practices in knowledge sharing, creation, and use. That’s why we are also very pleased to see so many of our active APQC members acknowledged for their achievements as well.”
Established in 1998 by Teleos, in association with The KNOW Network, the MAKE research program was created to recognize organizations for their ability to create shareholder value (or in the case of public and non-profit organizations, to increase stakeholder value) by transforming new as well as existing enterprise knowledge into superior products/services/solutions.
