Outdated processes and strategies are slowly killing large businesses. If leaders and their teams don’t adapt, many traditional companies are at risk of being left behind. As a globally recognized tech entrepreneur and futurist, Salim Ismail advises the world’s leading organizations on how to develop future-focused solutions to their business challenges.

Ismail is the Founder and Chair of OpenExO and ExO Works, a team of expert innovators who create custom plans to help organizations transform their business models and remain competitive in their industries.

The Next Generation of Exponential Organizations

In his groundbreaking book, Exponential Organizations 2.0, Ismail defies convention as he shares a proven framework for taking a company from a garage startup to an international corporation. Ismail knows what it takes to build successful organizations from the ground up, and his book teaches readers how to use the tools and resources available to them to do the same.

As Ismail explains in the book, exponential organizations, or ExOs, develop purpose-driven strategies for leveraging modern technology in their business models. As a result, they are able to achieve a growth rate of up to 10 times that of their less innovative counterparts. Exponential Organizations 2.0 is an essential guide for modernizing businesses and having maximum impact with minimal resources.

“Exponential Organizations is the most pivotal book in its class. Salim examines the future of organizations and offers readers his insights on the concept of exponential organizations, because he himself embodies the strategy, structure, culture, processes, and systems of this new breed of company.”

-- John Hagel, The Center for the Edge

"Exponential Organizations should be required reading for anyone interested in the ways exponential technologies are reinventing best practices in business.”

-- Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google
