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.
