Deloitte is organizing the Best Managed Companies programme for the seventh consecutive year, and together with ING for the second time. This was the first year that Cadac Group entered the competition and it was selected by the exacting jury as part of the group of best managed companies. To determine the winners, Deloitte and ING assessed strategy, business operations, degree of innovation, and financial results.
The theme of the 2014 Best Managed Companies competition was ‘Innovation’. According to Jan Baggen, CEO of Cadac Group, ‘We are continuously looking for ways to optimize the processes involved in creating, managing, and sharing digital design information. Thanks to more than 27 years of experience and our expertise, we can anticipate the needs of our clients, thereby safeguarding our continuity as an innovative partner.’
Participation in the programme is also highly valuable for the company’s development. Jan Baggen says, ‘As participants in the programme, we are continually challenged to view our own company through critical eyes. The feedback we receive from Deloitte and ING on our business operations offers practical advice for the future. The Best Managed Company qualification does not mean that there’s no more work to be done. Cadac Group will continue developing and innovating further next year as well.’
