The recipient of the Competitive Strategy Leadership Award is chosen based on four criteria: execution of competitive strategy, impact on market share, competitive brand positioning and impact on customer satisfaction/value. Frost & Sullivan nominates three companies for each award before handing the decision over to its research and consulting teams, who use a Decision Support Matrix to determine the most worthy recipient. This allows the decision-makers to objectively analyze each company’s performance and assign a score for each of the chosen criteria to arrive at a weighted average ranking.
CradlePoint will formally receive the Competitive Strategy Leadership Award on September 9th at Frost & Sullivan’s Growth, Innovation and Leadership Awards Gala in San Jose, California.
