re: Innovation In Spotlight, But Wrong Cast?
I believe companies in emerging markets tend to put more emphasis in innovation simply because they have to. In these markets, innovative solutions are required to solve the problems. If innovation wasn't required, it's likely that another product/company would have already filled the niche.

Rob, could not agree more. Innovation happens at a lower level than "company" - innovative products, business models, projects etc far more interesting. Also, company leaves out so many innovative government entities.

Interesting analysis, I do agree with BCG's opinion that companies in emerging markets put even more emphasis on innovation than those in developed markets, if only because they have less of a "we've always done it this way" mentality.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
