Footnotes:

(1) 2006 rankings, based on 2005 proxy statements, were calculated using “total direct compensation,” equal to: base salary + bonus + other cash compensation + restricted stock + dollar value of LTIP target + Black-Scholes values of option grants. Stock awards include restricted stock and performance share grants during the year calculated as the number of shares granted multiplied by the price at grant, if reported, or the price at year-end. Stock options are valued using a Black-Scholes methodology.

(2) 2005 rankings were calculated using the same methodology as the 2006 rankings, except that there was a 10% discount applied to the time-restricted stock values in 2005. This affected six companies in our list and the impacts were minimal and did not change the 2005 rankings.

(3) Consisting of restricted stock awards, or LTIP payouts in stock.

(4) This value is calculated for incumbents only. Data provided to Watson Wyatt by Equilar Inc.

The article raises questions about the descriptive value of disruption and innovation  — whether the terms are mere buzzwords or actually explain today's extraordinarily complex and fast changing business environment. 

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
