In his talk on Exponential Organisations, Paul Niel will discuss the non-linear trends of technology that are fundamentally reshaping businesses, complete industries and the world we are living in. He will lay out a framework for organisations that are best equipped to benefit from these changes and how investors can spot the upcoming opportunities.
Why new organizations are ten times better, faster, and cheaper than yours?
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 ten times better than its peers.
