This interactive guide shows the changes to The Boston Consulting Group’s list of most innovative companies from 2005 to 2014.
In the Stories tab, explore four categories of change in the list over time:
- Steady Innovators. Companies on the list every year from 2005 to 2014
- Movers. Companies that moved up ten or more positions from 2013 to 2014
- New Entrants. Companies that entered the list in 2014
- Returnees. Companies that returned to the list in 2014 after falling off in 2013 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 2012–2014 BCG Global Innovators Survey of senior executives, representing a wide variety of industries in every region.
