Silicon Valley legends Salim Ismail, Peter H. Diamandis, and Michael S. Malone collaborated with more than 80 global OpenExO community members by creating this new second edition.
The Second Edition adds new insight and data validating the ExO model
In 2015, OpenExO and its community ran an Exponential Quotient (ExQ) assessment, validated by Hult Business school, for the Fortune 100 companies. The ExQ examines these companies in terms of their exponential attributes.
In 2021, a follow-up on the ExQ analysis revealed that the top 10 most exponential F100 companies have 40x Higher Shareholder Returns. They have 3x Better Revenue Growth, 6.4x More Profitability, and 10.9x Higher Asset Utilization than the bottom 10. If you want results like this, the goal is clear, become an Exponential Organization.
Exponential Organizations, Second Edition, and its incredible community are here to be your guide to becoming an Exponential Organization
