FAST COMPANY: The World’s Most Innovative Companies

If you have not picked up a copy of Fast Company Magazine for March 08, please take a look. You can get it online through http://FastCompany.com. You may have to register online, but this magazine is so worth the read.

The current edition highlights The World’s Most Innovative Companies.

The top 5 are:

1. Google

2. Apple

3. Facebook

4. GE

5. IDEO

There is a full feature on Google, and the thing that struck me most is how they are appealing to Generation Y (diversity, healthy food, open collaboration, creativity, meaningful work). The one story that really grabbed my attention was the one featuring Matt Glotzbach, Product management director for Google Enterprise. On his first day on the job, he was challenged to go figure out how to launch Google Enterprise in Europe. Even though he was the new guy and had no international experience, he was given the task, and in one month Enterprise was launched in Europe. I don’t know Matt’s age, but this is so appealing to Gen Y…being given a big, meaningful job, and your leaders back you and empower you to go figure it out. That’s risky but this is what it takes to be one of the best..
