The list released by Boston Consulting Group named Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft, Huawei, Alibaba, Sony, and Facebook as the topmost innovative firms of the year.

The said ranking was determined through a survey with 2,500 global innovation executives as the respondents. The survey assessed the participating companies’ performance based on four dimensions, which include Global “Mindshare,” Industry Disruption, Industry Peer View, and Value Creation.

For this year, BCG introduced a new scoring pillar which evaluated a company’s ability to breach established industry entry barriers and play in an array of markets beyond its own.
