This article presents the results of a survey, conducted by Harris Interactive for Dow Coming, regarding the importance of innovation to a company's success. 32% of European respondents rated innovation as the single biggest challenge facing their business today, compared with just 10% of respondents in the Americas and Asia. Harris also asked who respondents thought were primarily responsible for innovation in their companies. These results show a trend towards more employees being aware of their shared role for innovation success.
