WHAT IS EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS?

EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS

Exponential Organizations was written as a guide to navigating the shifting business environment due to the introduction and proliferation of exponential technologies.

Today’s organizations are built for a linear world: hierarchical, centralized, closed, top down and focusing on ownership due to scarcity of people, resources, assets and platforms. They evolved one hundred years ago for an era of economies of scale and relative stability and predictability.

Our environment is changing exponentially, mainly driven by exponential technologies and globalization. As a result, the world is becoming increasingly open and transparent and we are slowly moving from a world of scarcity to a world of abundance.

Exponential Organizations lays the framework for organizations to adapt and thrive in a world of abundance by diving into new organizational structures that leverage exponential technologies and a shifting global business mindset.
