The Deloitte Best Managed designation is a symbol of Irish corporate success and recognises excellence in business management and performance.
The programme was launched in Ireland in 2008 following the success of the Best Managed Companies Programme in Canada where it has been running successfully since 1993 and is the country's leading business awards programme.
Each year companies compete for the Best Managed designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.
How the programme works
To be considered for a Deloitte Best Managed Company Award, companies go through a two-phase process. You must first complete a Phase I application form which you can submit online. Companies will be notified in late August as to whether they have progressed to Phase II. Companies shortlisted for this phase of the awards process must complete a second, more detailed submission, in which you must demonstrate how your organisation is meeting and mastering your growth strategy. Phase II evaluates companies under the following headings: strategy, capability, commitment and financials.To assist you during Phase II, we provide coaching or mentoring, where you will receive customised feedback from Deloitte and Barclays.
