Publisher's Summary

In business, performance is key. In performance, how you organize can be the key to growth. In the past five years, the business world has seen the birth of a new breed of company - the Exponential Organization - that has revolutionized how a company can accelerate its growth by using technology. An ExO can eliminate the incremental, linear way traditional companies get bigger, leveraging assets like community, big data, algorithms, and new technology into achieving performance benchmarks 10 times better than its peers. Three luminaries of the business world - Salim Ismail, Yuri van Geest, and Mike Malone - have researched this phenomenon and documented 10 characteristics of Exponential Organizations. Here, in Exponential Organizations, they walk the listener through how any company, from a startup to a multinational, can become an ExO, streamline its performance, and grow to the next level.

What the Critics Say

"Frost & Sullivan's 2014 Growth, Innovation, and Leadership Book of the Year 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)
"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."

Great content, dreadful narration

Would you try another book written by the authors or narrated by Kevin Young?

Salim Ismail is a genius. The narration, however, is awful. It ruins what should be an incredibly interesting read. It sounds like it's being read by a robot. Not suitable for a UK audience (or anyone with hearing)

Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Young’s performances?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I gave up after one chapter. Shame, Ismail deserves better!
