Exponential Disruption

Using frameworks and observations from organizational disruption work worldwide Michael builds the case in a crystal clear way that exponential disruption is accelerating and organizations need to think and behave differently.

Most leaders are focused on iterating to solve today’s problems without focusing on industry level changes occuring at an accelerating rate. Michael demonstrates that practical frameworks and strategies are both achievable and necessary.

Audience takeaways:

  •  Understanding of how quickly disruption is occuring, that it is accelerating and that it will come from outside your industry. Michael will provide concrete examples enabling audience members to grasp key concepts.
  • Michael, as the former CEO of ExO Works, is uniquely positioned to provide an understanding of what exponential organizations are and how to think and act like one.
  • An internal organizational level self analysis of what mindset shifts, new terminology and immediate next steps and/or frameworks should be adopted to future proof.
