Exponential Organizations: Why New Organizations are Ten Times Better, Faster and Cheaper than Yours (and what to do about it)
Salim Ismail. Publisher: Diversion Books, 2014.
This book highlights the changing business environment in which some companies have leveraged new technology to create exponential growth. It is based on research conducted by companies that have far outstripped linear growth. The first half of the book describes the new paradigms that are enabling these companies to grow. It provides a simple graphic showing the ten attributes of an exponential company. The second half of the book is a blueprint for how this can happen in your organization regardless if it is a new startup, a medium sized firm or a large corporation.
