This interactive guide shows the changes to The Boston Consulting Group’s list of the most innovative companies—now in its tenth year.
In the Stories tab, explore four categories of change in the list over time:
- Steady Innovators. Companies on the list every year from 2005 through 2015
- Movers. Companies that advanced ten or more positions from 2014 through 2015
- New Entrants. Companies that entered the list in 2015
- Returnees. Companies that returned to the list in 2015 after falling off in 2014 or before
In the Industries tab, examine movements within nine industries on the list: automotive, consumer and retail, energy, financial services, health care, industrial products, media and entertainment, technology and telecommunications, and transportation and travel.
For each company on the list beginning in 2005, we have assembled available data for revenues, profits, total shareholder returns, and R&D spending.
This interactive is based on the 2005–2010 BCG/BusinessWeek Senior Executive Innovation Survey and the 2012–2015 BCG Global Innovators Survey of senior executives and represents a wide variety of industries in every region.
