Progressive employer Amazon is again recognized in the TOP 5 of Boston Consulting Group’s (BCG) Most Innovative Companies.

Amazon walks the talk, embraces benefits and calibrates innovation systems

Innovators applauded in BCG's report entitled The Serial Innovation Imperative, such as Amazon, are praised for: 

  • Walking the talk

    BCG says innovation success starts with commitment; making innovation a priority and investing decisively behind that ambition. And boldness - being willing to pursue opportunities beyond your core. While many companies rank innovation as a top 3 priority, not all walk the talk.
  • Embracing the benefits of scale

    According to BCG, despite the conventional wisdom, larger companies pre-COVID-19 were not statistically disadvantaged on innovation versus smaller rivals. There are reasons to believe larger companies may now have an edge in developing winning products, services, and business models.
  • Calibrating their innovation systems for success

    Companies need a well-tuned system to drive a cycle of perpetual success, asserts BCG. Ensuring that the “machine that makes the machine” embraces best practices and is internally consistent across all dimensions is essential.
