一个公司的领导者是否具有创新力,对公司的发展可谓影响巨大。福布斯从过去五年中上市的50家最大的美国私营公司,以及最具创新成长公司排名前100位的美国公司中,选择了市值超过100亿美元的美国公司的创始人或首席执行官,给出了一份最具创新力领导者100名榜单。至于排名方法,简单来说主要是以下四个方面:

1、在媒体上的创新声誉。指的是媒体人对公司的评价,例如在顶级商业新闻中的声誉。
2、和创新相关的社会关系、社会资本。指的是公司在社会上的影响力,例如社交媒体上的关注者数量。
3、所领导公司的价值创造记录。指的是对投资者的回报,例如股票价值是否升值。
4、投资者对公司未来的增长和创新预期。指的是能否在未来实现创新溢价,增加市值和新的收入。
