"Salim Ismail presented the methodology to our 150-employee team and [the ExO Works coaches] spent 10 weeks with Visa. The employees came up with 135 ideas for new products, which we filtered down to 30—then 16, and finally down to four. Some ideas will become products and some will continue to be developed internally. Business aside, the multidisciplinary spirit of [the ExO Sprint] has had a profound impact on our company."

What is an Exponential Organization?

What is an Exponential Organization?

Exponential Organizations (“ExOs”) are a new class of businesses born from the rapid advancement of technology and the implementation of the 11 core attributes needed for true 21st century success. ExOs displace and ultimately replace traditional businesses by operating 10x more effectively and efficiently.  

By design, ExOs keep a small footprint, remain agile and lean, tap into abundance through technology—and scale at a rate that is unobtainable via traditional, linear business models. Some notable ExOs are:
