Like 10 years ago, in 2018 firms still reveal some barriers to innovation. Sideways6 surveyed 1,039 employees from around the world and here are the results: 82%
of employees said they have ideas about how to develop their company, but fear, hierarchy, and deafness inside of a company have a strong negative impact on the innovation process.

In February 2018 Fast Company
called Apple "the most innovative company" in its TOP 50
(Netflix is the 2nd, Amazon — the 5th, Instagram — the 12th). In 2017 Spigit
shown us another example of the innovative giant — Facebook.

use iPhone only in USA (2017 stats).
