These are not just the hot âtechâ companies of the moment, but companies growing in traditional sectorsâautomotive, train travel, household appliancesâwhere slow growth would be expected. Many have been in business for generations, and still they grow. Being innovative is a repeatable process that can be studied and learned, one that will sustain a companyâs profitable growth for decades.
