Enterprise knowledge-driven culture recognized as international benchmark

For the 11th consecutive year, Schlumberger has been named a leader in the Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) study—the international benchmark for world-class knowledge organizations.

Companies’ overall rankings are based on performance in eight knowledge sharing categories, and this year Schlumberger was cited as the leader for creating an enterprise knowledge-driven culture, as well as for developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership.

Hall of Fame

Schlumberger also enters the 2016 Global MAKE Hall of Fame as one of a select group of 23 organizations to have been a finalist in each of the past five annual studies. In the 19-year history of the study, only 65 organizations have been recognized as Global MAKE Winners.

Culture of collaboration

Schlumberger has long committed to having a knowledge-centered culture with a focus on collaboration and innovation. Experts are encouraged and expected to share knowledge across a vast expanse of time zones, technologies and services using well-defined processes and well-managed information systems.

Drivers of competitive advantage

The MAKE study is managed by Teleos, an independent knowledge management and intellectual capital research organization. The MAKE leaders are chosen by a panel of global Fortune 500 senior executives and internationally-recognized knowledge management and intellectual capital experts.

The panel rates companies in key knowledge performance areas such as developing knowledge workers through senior management leadership, developing and delivering knowledge-based services, maximizing enterprise intellectual capital, creating an environment for collaborative enterprise knowledge sharing, creating a learning organization, delivering value based on stakeholder knowledge, and transforming enterprise knowledge into stakeholder value.
