MIKE Award

Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise

The Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) Award build on the original Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) Award as conceived by Mr. Rory Chase of Teleos in 1998. The name changes are because we want to showcase both innovation and existing knowledge to identify and recognize those organizations which are creating shareholder and or stakeholder wealth by leveraging new innovative and existing enterprise knowledge into superior products, services, and solutions. The MIKE Award are based on the original Global MAKE study, and we will substantially revise the MAKE assessement methodology in the coming years. Thus, the new MIKE assessment methodology will be updated to reflect the growing dynamism of today’s innovative knowledge-based enterprises.

An international working group is formed to continue and build upon the MAKE framework to be known as MIKE.   Details about the framework of MIKE and its launch will be announced in May 2018.

Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise (MIKE) Award Launching Ceremony

      -by Dr John Dumay

“It is my great pleasure to attend the Asian Knowledge Forum cum MAKE Award Presentation Ceremony.

Teleos, in association with The KNOW Network, established the Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) research program in 1998.   A number of regional and national MAKE studies have been conducted annually. Since its birth, the MAKE Award has witnessed a progressive maturing of knowledge management, which enabled the making of many successful companies and organizations worldwide. Due to the retirement of Mr Rory Chase of Teleos based in London, he announced the successful completion of this Global MAKE Award in 2017.

After closing of the Award, an international working group has been formed to continue and build upon the MAKE framework to a new dimension, through the MIKE Awards which stand for the Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprise. This was announced by Rory in last December before its closing.

The new drive in KM now is how innovative enterprises are operating in our continually changing world. The criteria of MIKE Award is based on the original MAKE framework, with an increased emphasis on innovation. We believe the MIKE Award will serve as both a diagnosis tool for improving innovations in enterprises, and used for international benchmarking.   As we develop the MIKE framework, we will seek feedback from all stakeholders and we will announce the details soon on the website of the Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. I in the first round we anticipate to have companies from Hong Kong, mainland China, Iran, Australia, New Zealand and hopefully Finland participating the first round of the MIKE Award program.

Let me thank you all for contributing to the past success of MAKE Award and look forward to your participation and continued support to MIKE Award. And I want to especially thank Mr. Rory Chase for his outstanding stewardship of the MAKE Awards, and wish him happiness in reitement.

Thank you.”
