For over a decade, INSEAD has been involved in the design, publication and dissemination of global composite indices, in collaboration with prestigious partners such as the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the Confederation of Indian Industries, and more recently Cornell University and the Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore. Large global companies have also been part of this effort, including Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Intel, Booz and Co, and more recently Huawei, Du, Adecco Group AG and Tata Communications. This year, we are happy to welcome Google as a GTCI partner.
The Network Readiness Index, focused on global information technology and in existence since 2001, and the Global Innovation Index, first issued in 2007, have both gained the status of recognized international benchmarks in their respective fields. The third one, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index was launched on 26 November 2013.(all indices should be treated the same here: 3 with links or none)
Although these indices attract worldwide attention through their annual rankings of countries and cities, their common objective is to be used as policy instruments and practical tools to enhance the quality and impact of private and public decisions in the vital and interconnected fields of technology, innovation and talent.

Global Talent Competitiveness Index
The GTCI combines the academic research and expertise of INSEAD led by Bruno Lanvin, Executive Director for Global Indices, and Professor L.Felipe Monteiro, Academic Director, Global Talent Competitiveness Index, with the business experience and perspective of our partners, the Adecco Group and Google.
Addressing the theme of “Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence”,this seventh edition of GTCI explores how the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is not only changing the nature of work but also forcing a re-evaluation of workplace practices, corporate structures and innovation ecosystems. As machines and algorithms continue to affect a multiplicity of tasks and responsibilities and almost every job gets reinvented, the right talent is required not only to carry out new responsibilities and ways to work, but also to capture value from this transformative technology. This topic stands at the heart of the debate in this era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution as AI has become a game-changer in every industry and sector. Current education and skills acquisition will be transformed as well, implying that formal and informal learning structures will evolve to meet the needs created by this very same AI-driven world. Which companies, countries or cities are best positioned to benefit from the AI revolution? How can we guarantee that a joint effort be made to ensure that AI-driven increased productivity benefits society as a whole ?
The report, which covers 132 economies and 155 cities, is based on research conducted by INSEAD (led by Dr. Bruno Lanvin and Pr Felipe Monteiro) in partnership with The Adecco Group and Google.
The Global Launch of the Global Talent Competitiveness Index 2020 Report ‘Global Talent in the Age of Artificial Intelligence' took place on 22 January 2020 in Davos, Switzerland. Please read the Press Release

Global Information Technology Report
Since 2001, INSEAD and the World Economic Forum (WEF) have jointly issued and disseminated what is now the most widely recognized benchmark in the field of technology and competitiveness, namely the Global Information Technology Report (GITR). This annual report tracks various dimensions of information technology as a key component of national competitiveness, taking account of the political, regulatory, social and economic environments in which investments are made. It also assesses the ways in which technology, equipment and services are deployed, as well as their impact on development, growth and society. Over the years, an increasing number of countries around the world have adopted the GITR as a cornerstone of their national ICT strategies.
The Global Information Technology Report 2016 features the latest iteration of the Networked Readiness Index, which assesses the factors, policies and institutions that enable a country to fully leverage information and communication technologies (ICTs) for increased competitiveness and well-being.
