Innovation & Disruption are rapidly becoming the 21st century buzzwords of choice 😉 As usual even though many “talk the talk” few are actually “walking the walk”!

  1. Interesting, BUt Uber, Airbnb and Netflix is not included in your vision of Innovation? It is normal ? you dont think that those companies are innovative? 5 years to evaluate innovation in the digital world seems a long term evaluation..

    • Excellent point!!! I guess it boils down to the definition of Innovation used by Thomson Reuters to compile the report… Indeed 5 years is a long time, but to some extend it reveals who’s creating important building blocks for the world to use.
