The Event

We live in a world of exponential technologies, which accelerate our capacity to innovate. However, all our management thinking and organizational dynamics are set up for a linear, predictable age. As investor David Rose has said, “Any company designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st”.

The following one-day workshop serves as an introduction to the disruptive forces shaping our world and a new type of an organization set to succeed in the rapidly changing marketplace – an ‘Exponential Organization’ – ExO. We will examine its foundations, characteristics and help you to look at your own organization through an ExO lens.

The workshop is a mix of presentations, facilitated exercises, group work and personal moments of reflection. The main outcomes that participants will receive are:

  • Understanding of the disruptive forces shaping your industry as well as business and society in general.
  • Seeing the clear imperative the above trends represent for businesses today and understanding the key elements they need to succeed (ExO Attributes).
  • Hands-on experience of applying the ExO framework to your own organization or a case study client of your choice.
  • Understanding of the ExO Sprint process and its potential contribution to the future of your business.
  • Clear set of next steps to continue applying the ExO Mindset in your business.
  • Receiving an official OpenExO certificate for participation in the workshop.
