The 2013 Global Innovation 1000 Study: Navigating the Digital Future

by Barry Jaruzelski, John Loehr, and Richard Holman

In addition to our recurring analysis of R&D spending trends, our ninth annual study of the world’s 1,000 largest publicly listed corporate R&D spenders focuses on the digital enablers of the innovation process: how the most successful companies are—and aren’t—using digital tools and processes to improve speed, decrease cost, enhance quality, reduce complexity, and sharpen insight into customer and market needs to improve their innovation efforts.read more >
