The 50 Most Innovative Companies

Businessweek has posted a list of the top 50 most innovative companies in 2009. According to the survey, taken by “senior executives around the world,” Apple is number one, and the reason listed by 47% of respondents is the products. Not that surprising, no?

Suprisingly Microsoft comes in at number four, and Wal-Mart is not far behind at number 10, companies not necessarily being regarded as innovative. But then again, both of them are being recognized for their “process,” not their actual products. So maybe Businessweek is just asking the wrong people. At any rate, congrats to Apple for topping the list (for the second year in a row).

    This is an entry by an “Apple Addict”. Unfortunately Business Week mixed it up this year, because last year the leader (Apple) was praised for both product and BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION. Business Model Innovation is not mentioned very often this time, probable because of a lack to risk in times of financial turbulence.
    Wal-Mart not “being regarded as innovative”? Dead wrong, why are they outpacing constantly their competition. Is “process innovation” less valuable???
