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 10 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 10 characteristics of Exponential Organizations. Here, in Exponential Organizations , they walk the listener through how any company, from a startup to a multinational, can become an ExO, streamline its performance, and grow to the next level.

While the art of War is a well-known work, its creator sun Tzu remains a mystery. What is known about sun Tzu is that he was a Chinese military strategist, General and philosopher who lived in the Spring and autumn period of ancient China (approximately 771 to 476 BC). ancient Chinese records differ about his place of birth – The Spring and autumn annals (state records of the Zhou dynasty) state that he was a native of qi; shiji (records of the Grand historian) state that he was a native of qu. Both, however, agree that he was a military General of King ho-lu of Wu. The name sun Tzu is also not his birth name but a title meaning “master sun”; his birth name was likely sun Wu.

Written in 1912, The Metamorphosis was first published in 1915. “When Gregor Samsa woke up one morning morning from unsettling dreams, he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin.” With these startlingly bizzare opening lines, Kafka begins his masterpiece–one of the most influential works of twentieth century fiction. The novella tells the story of traveling salesman Gregor Samsa, who wakes up one morning only to find himself transformed into an insect. It subsequently details Samsa’s struggles to adapt to his new condition, as well as his family’s reaction to his “metamorphosis”.
