KMWorld honors APQC for the second year in a row for its ability to identify, distill, and share best practices for knowledge management.
(Houston, Texas - March 3, 2014) - 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 2014 list. This is the fourth win for APQC (previously won in wins in 2002, 2011, and 2013).
"APQC has proven to define the spirit of practical innovation by blending sparkling technology with a deep, fundamental commitment to customer success," says Hugh McKellar, KMWorld editor-in-Chief. The list of all KMWorld 100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management recipients can be found in the March issue of KMWorld Magazine. The list is compiled by KMWorld’s editorial team and through collaboration with colleagues, knowledge management practitioners, theorists, analysts, vendors, and customers.
As stated in The New Edge in Knowledge: How Knowledge Management is Changing the Way we Do Business (March 2011, John Wiley & Sons), “APQC defines KM as a systematic effort to enable information and knowledge to grow, flow, and create value. The discipline called KM is about creating and managing the processes to get the right knowledge to the right people at the right time and help people share and act on information in order to improve organizational performance”. Co-author and APQC CEO, Carla O’Dell, says “We thank KMWorld for this prestigious honor,” and APQC’s “research and KM practices continue to boom, and our members are achieving great results.”
APQC has collaborated with more than 450 leading global organizations, government, and nonprofit entities to launch and improve their KM programs and in 2013 was named, for the ninth time since 2003, one of North America’s Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) by TELEOS and The KNOW Network.
