Navigate Industry Disruption



Welcome to the most transformative period in human history!

The Fourth Industrial Revolution

We live today in a world of exponential technologies and accelerating breakthroughs, all of which present boundless opportunities. Accessing that opportunity, however, requires organizational evolution.

No enterprise will be able to stay alive--much less thrive--without adapting to the exponential rate of change that accelerating technologies deliver.

Welcome to the most transformative period in human history!

technologies change everything

Shift to Abundance

As exponential technologies converge and build upon one another, they bring abundance to every industry and, simultaneously, disrupt them all in one way or another.

Traditional business models work just fine in a scarcity-based environment, but they are not designed to operate in the fast-approaching world of abundance.

Exponential  technologies change everything

Becoming an Exponential Organization

Take advantage of abundance to grow faster

An Exponential Organization (ExO) is one whose impact (or output) is disproportionately large, at least 10x larger, compared to its peers because of the use of new organization techniques that leverage accelerating technologies.

Your organization's success comes from the ability to unlock the abundance delivered by emerging technologies, and readily adapt to your rapidly changing business environment.

Beware the organizational immune system! It will rally to attack your efforts to transform.

Becoming an Exponential Organization Becoming an Exponential Organization Becoming an Exponential Organization

Are you ready for a unique, exciting and rewarding journey?

Evolve your organization and suppress the immune system with an ExO Sprint.


ExO Sprint

The ExO Sprint is a tested and proven 10-week process that allows any organization to implement the ExO model to address industry disruption and overcome internal resistance to change.

Throughout the process participants are guided and coached through a series of assignments that help to reorient the organization to an exponential age and build internal champions who embed innovation and intrapreneurship within their organizations.
