The Exponential Transformation Workshop is designed to free your mind to be more creative when thinking about a different organization. It's a globally recognized workshop to broaden your vision of how to start a disruption process and how to overcome the corporate immune system to become an Exponential Organization (ExO).

The agenda focuses on two books authored by Salim Ismail, where you can understand in depth the attributes of Exponential Organizations (First Book) and second, understand the steps and the key elements to start an ExO Sprint disruption process (Second Book, 2019 ).

The modality of the workshop is a mix of presentations, advice, practical exercises, group work and personal reflection.

*** The world needs ambitious and brave people around the world to adopt exponential thinking in order to meet the challenges of the 4th industrial revolution. We want to work directly with you and with the community in Western Canada to develop new organizational mindsets that create a brighter future for us all. Think Exponential and attend this important workshop. ***
