Salim Ismail, Michael S. Malone and Yuri van Geest
Why New Organizations Are Ten Times Better, Faster, and Cheaper Than Yours (and What to Do About It)
Diversion Books, 2014
Future-proof your organization with low-cost and abundant information.
Authors Salim Ismail and Yuri van Geest – part of the future-oriented Singularity University – along with technology writer Michael S. Malone consolidate changes, ideas and soon-to-come technologies they’ve used, seen and heard about into a how-to manual for changing the business world. Command-and-control, hierarchy-heavy enterprises will not endure. Every company is or will evolve into an information-based entity, in which costs fall to nearly zero, abundance replaces scarcity and only “Exponential Organizations” (ExOs) survive. Dinosaur firms must change rapidly or face extinction. The authors are perhaps a bit too evangelical in their fervor, but their extraordinary vision may inspire executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
