Since I moved back to Silicon Valley, I have lived this unique ‘personality’ the region has. Bubbling, anything is possible kind of an attitude. Now, this study by Booz & Company and the Bay Area Council Economic Institute, the strategic research arm of the Bay Area Council, a consortium of more than 275 companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, worked together to identify the strategic, cultural, and organizational attributes that have led to the sustained success of this region.  It seems that their ability to integrate their innovation strategies with their business strategies is key!
