Asia: The Face of Innovation
Harvard Business Review articulates how the three key factors of People, Policies and Resources contribute to Asia’s innovation ecosystems, and shares how companies like Intel, Micron, Medtronic have been innovating for Asia from Singapore.
This white paper examines Asia’s role in business innovation through a variety of lenses, including:
- What innovation means at leading companies today.
- The key components companies need to create leading-edge innovation platforms that can help them take advantage of all that Asia has to offer, including not only fast economic growth but also a burgeoning, tech-savvy middle class and a fastexpanding knowledge base.
- The many Asian companies that have created environments that support these innovation platforms, which in turn has led to the development of industry-specific ecosystems in which vendors, suppliers, and manufacturers cluster in distinct, innovation-rich locations.
- Real-world successes at companies that are already taking advantage of Asia’s innovation ecosystems to stay a step ahead of the competition. Their stories suggest a path forward for others that wish to unlock Asia’s benefits and embed innovation more deeply in their own organizations.
