MSC selected as Asia's 11th Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise in 2017

Mobarakeh Steel Company (MSC) has climbed to 11th spot in the assessment process of the Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (2017 Asian MAKE) Award, announced Sharif University of Technology which serves as MAKE Assessment and Recognition Official Organizer in Iran. As many as 201 companies had participated in the assessment process.   
Mohammad Nazemi Harandi, who is in charge of Quality Assurance and Organizational Excellence at Mobarakeh Steel Company, said that MSC has fared very well in two parts of the eight-stage assessment process, adding the giant steelmaker has finished first and second in Asia in terms of “creating an environment for collaborative knowledge sharing” and “creating an enterprise knowledge-driven culture”, respectively.
He said Sharif University of Technology – working under the supervision of the KNOW Network – has officially held Iran Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) Award for top knowledge-based organizations since 2011.
Mobarakeh Steel Company has participated in the process ever since it was first held in Iran to have its knowledge-based maturity assessed, the official said, adding MSC has been named the top knowledge-based enterprise in all assessment processes.   
The assessment has three stages, he said. “In the first stage which was carried out in February 2017, Dr. Klaus North from Germany’s Knowledge-based Management Association – who also serves as a consultant in Lufthansa, Siemens and Mercedes Benz – attended the MSC assessment process in Iran as an international assessor. The shortlist of MSC as one of Iran’s top five knowledge-based enterprises marked the start of the second stage which took place in March 2017 at IRIB’s International Conference Center. Mobarakeh Steel Company whose senior managers laid out the company’s knowledge-based approaches in the process managed to win the prize for Iran’s best knowledge-based enterprise, an achievement which saw the company join Asia’s top MAKE Award nominees.”
He went on to say, “The final stage in which the jury reviewed the performance of the nominees saw Mobarakeh Steel Company outrival Asia’s top knowledge-based enterprises like Samsung, Capital, Toyota, and Tata Motors to be named Asia’s 11th knowledge-based enterprise.”
Nazemi further said a ceremony will be held by the KNOW Network in China in mid-March 2018 to praise Asia’s top knowledge-based enterprises and give them the MAKE Award.           
He congratulated Iran’s industry community and MSC staff for this achievement which is the biggest asset of the company and hoped Mobarakeh Steel Company will keep walking down the path to excellence and knowledge-based goals as it has done in the past and can conquer the summits of success on the international stage one after another.
In reaction, the Ministry of Industries, Mines and Trade has sent a letter to the MSC managing director to appreciate tireless efforts by the giant steelmaker’s managers and staff which have resulted in such an achievement.
Inaugurated in 1998, the Most Admired Knowledge Enterprise (MAKE) Award was conducted by Teleos (a foremost independent research company in knowledge management and intellectual capital areas) in association with the KNOW Network every year. The MAKE Award, the world’s largest and the most reliable reference of knowledge-based management assessment, serves as a basis for thousands of leading enterprises – small, medium and large-sized in the private, public and state sectors – from more than 130 countries in four continents. The following are some of the big names which were assessed in the MAKE process: BP, Siemens, Tata, Samsung, Apple, Google, Dell, Deloitte, IBM, McKinsey, Sony, Citigroup, Microsoft, HP, Yahoo, POSCO, BMW, and NASA.
