Frost & Sullivan's 2014 Growth, Innovation, and Leadership Book of the Year

"EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS should be required reading for anyone interested in the ways exponential technologies are reinventing best practices in business." —Ray Kurzweil, Director of Engineering at Google

In business, performance is key. In performance, how you organize can be the key to growth.

In the past five years, the business world has seen the birth of a new breed of company—the Exponential Organization—that has revolutionized how a company can accelerate its growth by using technology. An ExO can eliminate the incremental, linear way traditional companies get bigger, leveraging assets like community, big data, algorithms, and new technology into achieving performance benchmarks ten times better than its peers.

Three luminaries of the business world—Salim Ismail, Yuri van Geest, and Mike Malone—have researched this phenomenon and documented ten characteristics of Exponential Organizations. Here, in EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS, they walk the reader through how any company, from a startup to a multi-national, can become an ExO, streamline its performance, and grow to the next level.

"EXPONENTIAL ORGANIZATIONS is the most pivotal book in its class. Salim examines the future of organizations and offers readers his insights on the concept of Exponential Organizations, because he himself embodies the strategy, structure, culture, processes, and systems of this new breed of company." —John Hagel, The Center for the Edge

Today’s top business challenge is adapting to accelerating technological change. We are in the early stages of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, characterized by the convergence of new exponentially advancing technologies that blur the lines between physical, digital and biological realms. The results are a complete uprooting of industries the world over as entire production, management, and governance systems are impacted.
The best-selling book Exponential Organizations by Salim Ismail explained why we are seeing the emergence of a new kind of organization—the Exponential Organization—that thrives in the face of industry disruption and achieves its own exponential growth. Since the release of Exponential Organizations in 2014, Salim Ismail, Francisco Palao, and Michelle Lapierre have been working with leading organizations around the world (including Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Visa, Stanley Black & Decker and Hewlett Packard) to help them apply Exponential Organization principles to avoid being disrupted and to take the lead in disrupting their own and other industries. The result is a ten-week process called the ExO Sprint that speeds up transformation while blocking the natural immune system response that organizations must overcome in order to successfully transform themselves.
Salim's first bestseller was focused on why Exponential Organizations exist today. Exponential Transformation is a detailed handbook for applying Exponential Organization principles, giving individuals and organizations a step-by-step approach to follow to become their own ExO.

Kahneman's work with Amos Tversky is the subject of Michael Lewis's The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds

In the international bestseller, Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman, the renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. The impact of overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning our next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems shape our judgments and decisions.

Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Winner of the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and selected by The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is destined to be a classic.

A practical guide to the new economy that is transforming the way we live, work, and play.

Uber. Airbnb. Amazon. Apple. PayPal. All of these companies disrupted their markets when they launched. Today they are industry leaders. What’s the secret to their success?

These cutting-edge businesses are built on platforms: two-sided markets that are revolutionizing the way we do business. Written by three of the most sought-after experts on platform businesses, Platform Revolution is the first authoritative, fact-based book on platform models. Whether platforms are connecting sellers and buyers, hosts and visitors, or drivers with people who need a ride, Geoffrey G. Parker, Marshall W. Van Alstyne, and Sangeet Paul Choudary reveal the what, how, and why of this revolution and provide the first “owner’s manual” for creating a successful platform business.

Platform Revolution teaches newcomers how to start and run a successful platform business, explaining ways to identify prime markets and monetize networks. Addressing current business leaders, the authors reveal strategies behind some of today’s up-and-coming platforms, such as Tinder and SkillShare, and explain how traditional companies can adapt in a changing marketplace. The authors also cover essential issues concerning security, regulation, and consumer trust, while examining markets that may be ripe for a platform revolution, including healthcare, education, and energy.

As digital networks increase in ubiquity, businesses that do a better job of harnessing the power of the platform will win. An indispensable guide, Platform Revolution charts out the brilliant future of platforms and reveals how they will irrevocably alter the lives and careers of millions.

【在加速化的年代,你的組織需要轉變為「指數型組織」】


歡迎來到指數時代,在這個加速化的年代中,你要如何掌控這一切?你要如何吸引人才,建立起一家在速度、專業和創新能力上都能與指數時代相配合的企業呢?答案是要建立「指數型組織」!

指數型組織是指一個組織在使用了新型槓桿化加速技術後,其影響力或產出比同行有不成比例的巨大——至少必須十倍大。

Google、Amazon、阿里巴巴、蘋果、特斯拉、GE……無論是新創、網路業或傳統產業,它們的業績都能夠創造指數型爆發,其中的祕密就是指數型組織!

當數位科技以指數型曲線加速變革,企業必須跳脫傳統線性發展思維,成為可以充分擴張、快速發展而且具有智慧的組織,才能在加速創新與競爭的時代成為贏家!


【打造指數型組織的十一個關鍵】


為了理解何謂指數型組織,作者指出技術進步的幅度是以指數方式成長,資訊變得越來越多、越來越快,為了適應變革快速的時代,指數型組織的概念從而產生,這種組織有著以下六種外部屬性:


●宏大變革目標:組織秉持的更崇高、更有抱負的目標

●隨需求聘僱的員工:利用基本組織以外的人員

●社群與群眾:挖掘一大群充滿熱情、願意貢獻時間和專業技術的愛好者

●演算法:收集資料,並加以組織、應用與揭露公開

●槓桿資產:租賃、共用或利用資產,而非擁有資產

●參與:以遊戲化、激勵競賽的方式,製造外部網路效應


但急速擴張的組織內部有可能出現盲點或斷裂,因此指數型組織同時也應具備以下五種內部屬性:


●介面:以系統化和自動化的方式,將來自外部屬性的產出加以篩選和處理

●儀表板:衡量和管理組織的新方法,裡面包含人都人能取用且必要的公司和員工衡量標準

●實驗:有勇氣執行精實創業方法,對假設進行測試,並且不斷嘗試已受控制的風險

●自治:以輕量級的「目標和關鍵成果」方法,取代傳統由上而下的管理方式

●社交技術:由七個關鍵部分組成,創造透明度和連結性,最重要的是降低組織的資訊延遲


【所有企業都能成為指數型組織,也必須如此靠攏】


指數型組織模式並不是只適用於創新事業或是新創公司,它其實也可以運用在既存的中型、大型公司,促使其達到指數型成長。儘管解決方案視各公司的狀況而異,沒有放諸四海皆準的範本,但本書檢驗了許多公司的轉型案例,包括:TED、GitHub、GoPro、可口可樂、海爾、小米、英國衛報、奇異、亞馬遜……等知名公司。

最終,無論是微型、中型、還是大型企業,在這個變革快速資訊爆炸的年代中,要不是往指數型企業靠攏,就是被指數型企業挑戰,而公司的選擇,就足以決定它們的存亡。


【本書特色】


1. 論述完整清晰,以明確的流程步驟,說明指數型組織的關鍵屬性與建立方式

2. 眾多現實案例剖析,無論產業新舊、規模大小或人數多寡,都有足以參考的轉型範本

3. 符合加速時代的組織管理完整新論述,擘畫出瞬息萬變、資訊變化迅速的年代所需要的組織新模型。
