Schlumberger has long committed to having a knowledge-centered culture with a focus on innovation and collaboration methodologies to share technical expertise and best practices.

International benchmark

That commitment was recognized once again this year in the 2015 Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) study, an international benchmark of best practices among knowledge organizations worldwide. This is the 10th time that the company has been named in the 18-year history of the study.

Knowledge performance

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 organizations in key knowledge performance criteria such as innovation, developing knowledge through senior management leadership, creating a learning organization and a collaborative knowledge-sharing environment, maximizing intellectual capital within the organization, and delivering value to customers and stakeholders.

Sharing best practices

The Schlumberger knowledge management system encourages experts to share knowledge across a vast expanse of time zones, products and services. By making this possible via well-managed information systems and well-defined processes, Schlumberger teams create workflows and develop innovative technology to help address the technical challenges of the oil and gas industry.
