Award winning author, Founding Executive Director and current Global Ambassador of Singularity University, Salim Ismail, will host the Exponential Organizations Workshop on Monday, June 1 at the Idea Center at Miami Dade College, according to an announcement from Rokk3r Labs in Miami.
The rapid pace of technological change across all industries has been disrupting legacy organizations in recent years. Cisco’s CEO John Chambers believes that only 1 out of 3 major corporations will survive the next 25 years and as he said at last year’s CISCO Live conference, “We need to change.” Exponential Organizations are expected to dethrone 40% of Fortune 500 companies in the next 10 years.
Since 2010, the business world has witnessed the emergence of a new type of company – the Exponential Organization – that has revolutionized how companies accelerate their growth and success by leveraging new organizational principles and exponential technologies.
This workshop will focus on preparing startups, midsize and enterprise-level companies to harness the power of exponential technologies in the way they structure companies that are best enabled to become agile, thriving, exponential organizations for the future.
The traits exponential organizations exhibit and how companies of all sizes can benefit from integrating these traits are the key elements of the Exponential Organizations Workshop, and the focal point of Ismail’s book, Exponential Organizations: Why New Organizations are Ten Times Better, Faster and Cheaper Than Yours (And What To Do About It), which won the 2014 Frost and Sullivan Growth, Innovation and Leadership (GIL) Book of the Year award.
“Entrepreneurs and dreamers all over the world have the ideas, ingenuity and talent to enable exponential innovation,” says Rokk3r Labs CEO Nabyl Charania. “Salim Ismail’s Exponential Organizations Workshop in partnership with Rokk3r Labs exists to help entrepreneurs and business leaders understand how to harness exponential technologies and innovative organizational techniques to create ventures that change the world.”
Participants at this one-day crash course will walk away with a clear understanding that if their organizations do not adopt the Exponential Organizations principles and frameworks, they might be left behind in this age of disruptive technology.
In addition to learning from and interacting with Ismail, the Exponential Organizations Workshop is an opportunity to network and share ideas with local business leaders across all industries. In March of this year, the first Exponential Organizations Workshop in Miami had over 200 people and 130 companies in attendance.
The event will take place on Monday, June 1, 2015 from 9:30am-6:00pm at the Idea Center at Miami Dade College.
