Multinational companies have traditionally centred their innovation efforts on the needs of developed markets and then exported modified versions of their products around the world. Now many are reversing the process by developing exciting innovations in emerging markets and taking them back to developed countries. As the success stories mount up, business leaders from around the globe are rethinking their strategy and company
structure to realise the potential of reverse innovation.
