The process of developing this definitive report card on corporate reputations begins when Los Angeles-based management-consulting firm Korn Ferry teams up with Fortune to determine the “World’s Most Admired Companies,” which they’ve done since 1997. They started with the Fortune 1000—the 1,000 largest U.S. companies ranked by revenue—and non-U.S. companies in Fortune’s Global 500 database with revenues of $10 billion or more. They then selected the 15 largest for each international industry and the 10 largest for each U.S. industry, surveying a total of 680 companies from 29 countries.
