An Exponential Organization (ExO) is one whose impact is at least 10X larger  compared to its competition because of the use of new management techniques  that leverage disruptive technologies.

Time to think 10X

“Any company designed for success  in the 20th century... doomed to failure in the 21st"

—Investor David Rose

Ready to transform your business and achieve exponential results?
Exponential Organisations (ExO) are the businesses that succeed the most in this age of exponential technologies, but let’s be honest. Implementing the ExO model is not an easy task. Without the right process in place, many challenges—including your company’s own immune system—will conspire to prevent your organisation from achieving the transformation you desire.


Surge has developed a transformation program based on the book: "Exponential Transformation", written by Francisco Palao, Michelle Lapierre and Salim Ismail,  to evolve your organisation to navigate industry disruption and change the world for the better.


After running the ExO Sprint, not only will your business be resistant to disruption, it will also be in a position to leapfrog current innovators and take a leadership spot within your industry. Or even invent a new one!

The ExO workshop

The ExO Sprint offers practical solutions and suggestions for tackling each of the challenges to transformation.
In addition, the ExO Sprint has been successfully applied across a variety of industries and to many companies worldwide, including Procter & Gamble, Stanley Black & Decker, Hewlett-Packard and Visa.
By running an ExO Sprint, you will discover the right business model, which will then enable you to connect to abundance. You will also be equipped to manage the corporate immune system’s compulsion to block innovation and change, learn how to implement the right innovation-oriented methodologies and use a learn-by-doing approach to build internal capabilities within the organisation.
All in just 10 weeks!
