In this special issue: Fast Company´s report on the 50 most innovative companies. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are transformational firms, obsessions of the business world and deservedly so. But if you had to pick, which one would you say is the most innovative--literally, the most innovative company in the world? (And then who´s No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4?) The four we chose were featured on our cover last November. Since then, they have jostled for the No. 1 title--with Amazon´s Kindle Fire tablet, Apple´s Siri voice assistant, Facebook´s Timeline interface, and Google´s reinvention of YouTube as a niche-programming powerhouse. Yet each company has fallen victim to hubris, causing public-relations firestorms and some sloppy products. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Borgers.

In this special issue:Fast Company´s report on the 50 most innovative companies.An artificial heart and its lightweight power drive. A better airline for Brazil. Chocolate from Madagascar and a soccer shirt made of plastic water bottles. A fashion leader escaping its pattern, a smelter, and that little coupon startup in Chicago that´s suddenly worth billions. All this from one simple word: innovation. The 50 companies on our 2011 list have chosen a unique path. Today´s business landscape is littered with heritage companies whose CEOs battle their industry´s broken model with inertia, layoffs, lawsuits -- anything that squeezes pennies and delays the inevitable. How many of these companies will be dominant in 2025? Few. That world will be ruled by the kinds of companies on this list. They´re nondogmatic, willing to scrap conventional ideas. (A mere 30-second TV ad? Let´s do 200 online videos in two days, say the creatives at Wieden and Kennedy.) They´re willing to fail. (Google´s search team runs up to 200 experiments at any one time.) They know what they stand for. (By making home-viewing as easy as possible, Netflix walloped Blockbuster, which thought its business had something to do with stores.) 1. Language: English.
