The GE Global Innovation Barometer, now in its third year, explores how business leaders around the world view innovation and how those perceptions are influencing business strategies in an increasingly complex and globalized environment. This year’s study examines what factors business believe to be drivers and deterrents of innovation and analyzes specific approaches and policies that enable innovation and drive growth.
The Barometer is an international opinion survey of senior business executives actively engaged in the management of their firm’s innovation strategy. GE expanded the global study in 2013, surveying more than 3,000 executives in 25 countries. It is the largest global survey of business executives dedicated to innovation.
