Fast Company magazine recently published the list of Most Innovative Companies 2010.
Facebook jumped from its no.15 ranking last year to top the chart this time, while amazon jumped from no.9 to no.2.
Interestingly there is a link specific to most innovative Indian companies and the leader of this lot is the Indian Premier League.
In the Design section IDEO, my personal favorite, comes second to the BMW Group Designworks.
