Mumbai: Tata Chemicals has been recognised as Asia’s Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) 2011 winner. The award was presented in a glittering ceremony during the 12th World Knowledge Forum at Seoul, South Korea, on October 13, 2011. A panel of Asia-based Fortune 500 senior executives and internationally-recognised knowledge management / intellectual capital experts selected the winners. The 2011 Asian MAKE panel has recognised Tata Chemicals for developing knowledge-based products / services / solutions, and transforming enterprise knowledge into stakeholder value.
Speaking on the achievement, R Mukundan, managing director, Tata Chemicals, said, "We are delighted to be recognised as the ‘2011 Asian MAKE winner’. Recognitions such as the MAKE awards strengthen our resolve to relentlessly pursue the knowledge management journey of ‘insight to intelligence to innovation’ by deploying state-of-the-art knowledge management solutions and actively engaging employees in creating value. Leveraging knowledge that is present within our organisation to achieve higher levels of innovation in a collaborative manner is a strategic differentiator for us today. In line with this, knowledge management provides a significant thrust for Tata Chemicals to achieve its objective. Awards like these give us the confidence that we are moving in the right direction."
The panel rated organisations against the MAKE framework of eight key knowledge performance dimensions which are visible drivers of competitive advantage and intellectual capital growth, namely, creating an enterprise knowledge-driven culture; developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership; innovation; maximising enterprise intellectual capital, creating an enterprise collaborative knowledge-sharing environment; creating a learning organisation; delivering value based on customer / stakeholder knowledge, and transforming enterprise knowledge into shareholder / stakeholder value.
The MAKE study recognises organisations which are leaders in creating organisational intellectual capital and value, through the transformation of individual or enterprise knowledge into superior products, services or solutions.
