The NextGen Entreprise


As part of our annual Summit, The NextGen Enterprise Awards will reward managerial innovations carried out in private and public companies in line with the experts and research work of the ESSEC Chair in Managerial Innovation and Operational Excellence (IMEO).

The NextGen Enterprise Awards reward management, organization, governance and societal impact projects carried out in companies. They also reward operational and innovative ways to transform and build the company of tomorrow, the future of work and society.

The applications will be assessed by a jury of professionals, experts and academics on managerial innovations.


Either by changing the organization’s whole governance system or introducing agility principles in a specific department, these companies have seen their purpose come to life, and are now ready to face the challenges that await them together as a team!
