About India MAKE Awards:

The Indian Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) study is part of Teleos’ MAKE research program. The Indian MAKE study was established in 2005 to recognize organizations (founded and headquartered in India) for their ability to create shareholder value (or in the case of public and non-profit organizations, to increase stakeholder value) by transforming new as well as existing enterprise knowledge into superior products/services/ solutions.


This research tool employs an expert panel’s perceptual knowledge to identify critical issues – in the case of the Indian MAKE study to identify those Indian-headquartered organizations which are leaders in creating organizational intellectual capital and value through the transformation of individual/enterprise knowledge into world-class products/services/solutions. In the Indian MAKE study there are three rounds of consensus building. In the first round, members of the expert panel nominate enterprises founded and headquartered in India. In the second round, each member of the expert panel evaluates and selects as best practice a maximum of three organizations from the list of nominees. In the third and final round, the Indian MAKE Finalists are ranked against each of the eight knowledge performance dimensions which form the MAKE framework and are the visible drivers of wealth creation:

  • creating a knowledge-driven enterprise culture
  • developing knowledge leaders and workers
  • innovation (R&D, creativity and new product/solution/service design and delivery)
  • maximizing enterprise intellectual capital
  • enterprise-wide collaboration and knowledge sharing
  • creating a learning organization
  • creating value from customer/stakeholder knowledge
  • transforming enterprise knowledge into shareholder/stakeholder value
