According to the 2013 Global Innovation Index, a rich database of detailed metrics for 142 economies (representing 94.9% of the world's population and 98.7% of global GDP), the United States currently ranks 5th in innovation behind Switzerland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.
Leadership Tip of the Month: To Drive Innovation, Lead by Example

Employees' fear of failure is one of the biggest inhibitors of innovation. It prevents collaboration and appropriate risk-taking. As a leader, it's your job to eliminate this roadblock by:
  1. Encouraging employees to work together and learn from their mistakes.
  2. Making yourself accessible. Being available promotes creativity and idea sharing.
  3. Being a role model of cross-organizational work. Openly collaborate with and constructively challenge other company executives.
  4. Strategically disrupting your business. Rotate staff among roles to promote cross-pollination of ideas and talent.
