The purpose of this deck is to give the executive technology management team of a large company / MNC a quick snapshot of opportunities for external sources of innovation in Asia Pacific. Where should the company look in the region to source external inspiration.

This is an RFC, and I am looking for suggestions on how to improve the material to make it more useful for purpose.

Note to the reviewer: Don’t get caught up in the “Innovation Potential rating.” Each company would need to do the ratings themselves relative to their specific context. For example, an investment bank would have very different ratings than a pharmaceutical firm. The deck hopes to make that analysis easier, but the analysis would still need to be done.

  • Thanks Chin Wan. If you have some time to spare, out of curiosity, for the banking sector, how would you re-score the countries?

  • I feel that 9/10 for Singapore is overrated. In fact, I think Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia should be above Singapore.

    Yes, Singapore is very business friendly and has very good infrastructure but when it comes to innovation, they are not that good. Singaporeans tend to be too rigid and not flexible at all. My current work takes me to all 10 ASEAN countries and I can see that Indonesia and Philippines are the next innovation centres.

    If you compare Singapore and Malaysia, we export a lot of our innovative technology to Singapore. Take the banking software industry. Malaysia has more than 100 banking software companies including a few big ones like Silverlake and Consolsys.

    I would say Singapore is a very good place for MNC to have their HQ there but it is not a good place for innovation. I think it is because Singaporeans are 'programmed' to follow the rules and to innovate, you need to 'bend the rules'.
