The A List -
World's Most Respected Companies
IIM's Management Society recognizes and honors the works of the world's top
global companies. A team of IIM researchers
conducted the study. Researchers' criteria for accepting nominations
included the importance of the company's products and services, globalization of operations and markets,
stakeholders satisfaction (employees, clients, partners and investors),
successful business growth, recognition within the consulting, academic and
international management communities.

According to Mr. Med Jones, Editor-in-Chief, no "elite" list is all-inclusive. There
are many successful companies that do not have equal media or research exposure. The nomination for A List is open worldwide.

Methodology & Ranking Criteria
methodology provides the ability to validate nominations and allows
insights into the nominees' critical success factors.
Public stakeholders can nominate
their most respected companies and their leaders.
Voters are then asked to give the reasons for their nominations, thus
providing valuable insight into what key factors drive the success of
these nominees. Questions are presented in free-form
and open-ended formats.
Further research is conducted to validate the
entries using sales figures, business/investment analysts ratings, competitive benchmarking and
market impact as expressed in the global media.
After verification and acceptance of the nomination,
the input is then statistically analyzed taking into consideration the
geographic region, the relationship with the company, the number of votes, the
listed reasons and the order in which they are listed.
When two or more companies score
equally on overall ratings (reach a tie) IIM editors refer to the
number of votes.
In a nutshell, the public nominates, IIM editors validate the
nominations, and the number votes determines the respectability and ranking.
