The Influencers

The Influencers

"Influence is like water, always flowing somewhere."
— veteran strategy guru Gary Hamel.

With that in mind, BusinessWeek, working with an advisory board of 14 academics, consultants, and industry leaders worldwide, has developed a list of the World's Most Influential Companies. We selected 10 companies that played a major role in their industry over the past year and could shape the corporate landscape for years to come. Have a look at the names on our list, as well as two other categories we think are worth noting: companies that are masters of their domain because they dominate their market and those up-and-comers likely to emerge as the next generation of influence leaders.
