ExO Workshop

The ‘ExO’ (exponential organisations) methodology is based on a book by Salim Ismail, founding executive director of the Singularity University.

Venture Capital systems around the world are spawning Exponential Organisations such as Uber (disrupting the taxi industry), AirBnb (disrupting the hotel industry), and Tangerine (disrupting the banking industry). Disruptive technologies and innovation has always been a threat to established organisations. However in the 21st century disruptive innovation happens 10 times faster than it used to.

ExO’s run at a pace 10x faster than your organisation. ExO’s threaten the status quo of virtually every organisation, industry and sector in every location worldwide including NZ.


WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT EXO’S?

By attending Creative HQ’s workshop you will understand how ExO’s manage to operate at 10x the speed of other organisations, how your organisation can speed up and what strategies you can put in place to avoid being disrupted by startups.

During the ½ day ExO workshop attendees will learn:

  • How ExOs achieve their 10x speed: MTP and the 10 dimensions of ExO
  • What the implications of ExOs are for companies in NZ
  • How to perform an ExO risk assessment
  • How to employ some of the techniques used by ExOs
  • What response strategies are most suitable to guard against disruption from ExOs
