We asked senior executives in Asia for their choices of The Most Innovative Companies and here is their list. It’s a bit different from the Global 25 Most Innovative Companies. McDonalds is No. 18 on the Asia list but No. 30 in the Global list.

Asian Execs’ Top 20:

1- Apple 2- Google 3- Toyota 4- Tata 5- Nintendo 6- Nokia 7- GE 8- Reliance 9- Microsoft 10- Sony 11- Samsung 12- IBM 13- HP 14- P&G 15- 3M 16- Goldman Sachs 17- Honda 18- McDonalds 19- BMW 20- Facebook

One big question—where are the Chinese companies when it comes to innovation? Why didn’t the nearly 3,000 senior managers in the BW/BCG survey put any Chinese company on the list of Top 50 companies, much less Top 25 or even Top 20 Asian companies?

I would add Lenovo because of its innovation. You?
