APQC Among 100 'Companies That Matter' in Knowledge Management

For the third time, KMWorld Honors APQC for its ability to identify, distill, and share best practices for knowledge management.

(Houston, Texas - March 4, 2013) - APQC, the world’s leading proponent of knowledge management, benchmarking, and best practices business research, has been named as one of KMWorld's 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management (KM) on its 2013 list.  This is the third time that APQC has received this honor.

The KMWorld 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management list is compiled by KMWorld’s editorial team and through collaboration with colleagues, knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, and customers. The complete list appears in the March issue of KMWorld Magazine. "Criteria for inclusion varies, but all companies have things in common. Each has either helped to create a market, redefine one or enhance one, and they all share two things—the velocity of innovation and the agility to serve their customers" says Hugh McKellar, KMWorld Editor-in-Chief.

“APQC’s work in KM never stops. Our 20 plus years of hands-on experience in KM benchmarking, best practices, and implementation has given us an opportunity to share practical, productive, and measurable uses of knowledge. Our research and KM practices continue to boom, and our members are achieving great results,” said Carla O'Dell, APQC CEO and coauthor of The New Edge in Knowledge: How Knowledge Management is Changing the Way We Do Business (March 2011, John Wiley & Sons). “We thank KMWorld for this prestigious honor.”

APQC has collaborated with more than 450 leading global organizations, government, and nonprofit entities to launch and improve their KM programs and in 2012 was named, for the eighth time since 2003, one of North America’s Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) by TELEOS and The KNOW Network.
