Getting an ARDÁN indicator is not easy. Of the 33,000 companies analyzed, only 6% get 1 or more ARDÁN indicators.
The Consortium of the Free Zone of Vigo, through its Business Information service ARDÁN has been preparing indicators of Good Business Practices since 1995. This line of work is developed under the protection of the ARDÁN Chair of the University of Vigo and aims to identify and value business excellence in Galicia by analyzing the public economic information available from Galician companies.
Each of the ARDÁN indicators is methodologically supported by expert research groups in the field of competitiveness and business management. The ARDÁN Indicator obtains those companies that exceed the restrictive values ??required in the ratios or in the synthetic indices used for the Measurement of your business performance. These companies demonstrate differential competencies in the generation of competitive advantages, which makes them benchmarks in the economy of Galicia.
Congratulations, Improvers, because this recognition has been the result of the efforts of each and every one of you!
