The IKEA Group won the well-deserved award, which was presented at the USU World Summit 2021, with the implementation of its innovative service concept for knowledge management. USU's award to the multinational furniture group honors in particular new, inspiring and demonstrably successful ideas in the practical application of USU Knowledge Management solutions.

"The Knowledge Award recognizes customers and partners who really stand out in developing new and innovative methods and service strategies in knowledge management, above all in practice," says USU Managing Director Sven Kolb, commenting on award’s background and criteria.
