How to become an Exponential Organisation

Is it possible for an existing company to transform into an Exponential Organisation?

Welcome to the final week of our three-week series looking at Exponential Organisations. The first week we looked at what is causing the rise of exponential organisations, last week we discussed what made a company an exponential organisation and we will conclude this week with how to become an exponential organisation.

But first a recap of the last two weeks

This tool is called an Exponential Quotient Assessment. It consists of 34 questions and will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
