0:06 partner of the global innovation index the GI index as it's now recognizes the
0:12 importance of innovation as one of the key drivers of global growth and global
0:17 development
0:19 this year's researched is really focused in the first place on the impact of the
0:24 digital revolution which is taking place and affecting so many companies and so
0:30 many industries around around the world
0:33 the research shows that digital is changing the way companies innovate
0:38 first of all eight out of the ten companies that we interviewed stress
0:44 that the global nature of their innovation processes is increasing
0:49 dramatically and second of all that whereas in the past they used to work
0:54 together perhaps with suppliers the ecosystem is broadening quite
0:58 dramatically and including academics individuals governments and institutions
1:03 around the world
1:04 digital is therefore having a profound impact on the way companies do
1:10 innovation and are successful for that most companies however are not ready for
1:16 this way of innovation
1:18 most companies are not startups after all there are established companies used
1:22 to a certain way of working and often that way of working takes place within
1:26 the four walls of the organization
1:29 companies need to transform therefore they need to change the way they work
1:32 that is not easy
1:34 that takes time but at all can be done and the impact we believe in the benefit
1:38 of that is tremendous innovation is therefore not simply a matter of
1:43 creative processes and of startups
1:46 innovation is in the first place a challenge but also an opportunity for
1:49 established companies to change their ways of working and to profit from that
1:54 ... is proud to be the knowledge partner of this of this effort
