Every year, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) releases their Most Innovative Companies ranking. Based on a survey of over 1,000 innovation executives polled in Dec. 2022 and Jan. 2023, BCG assessed a company’s performance on four dimensions:
Global mindshare: the number of votes received from all global innovation executives
Industry peer view: the number of votes received from executives in a company’s own industry
Industry disruption: the Diversity Index (Herfindahl-Hirschman) of votes across industries
Value creation: total shareholder return, including share buybacks, over the 3-year period from Jan. 2020 through Dec. 2022.
