Innovation is the key driver of business and economic success. In January 2011, GE developed an Innovation Barometer based on a survey of 1000 senior business executives in 12 countries. We asked about both the drivers and impact of innovation. In this visualization, weâ€™re taking a deeper look, enabling comparisons between what execs believe drive innovation and whatâ€™s actually happening in market. See how it all stacks up!
The data used in this visualization comes from a number of sources including: GE Innovation Barometer, 2011; IESE Business School, sponsored by Ernst & Young, 2011; The World Bank, 2011; UNESCO Institute for Statistics, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2001; World Intellectual Property Organization; United Nations Statistics Division, 2009; CIA World Factbook, 2010, 2009, 2001; World Health Organization, 2000; Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy, 2010; Gallup, 2011
