2020/21: Challenging Years for Business Leaders
The cost and complexity of building and growing a business internationally during the pandemic has increased for many business leaders. According to The Board of Innovation, there were clear winners during the pandemic. These were typically companies able to switch the Low Touch Economy. In most cases, tech companies benefited from low reliance on the physical world and with their scalable, digital- based business models.
Lessons from the Unicorns
A unicorn is a privately-owned startup with a valuation exceeding $US1 billion. A study of 100 unicorns was conducted to determine the common attributes behind their business success. The study resulted in Salim Ismail’s book, ‘Exponential Organisations: Why new organizations are ten times better, faster, and cheaper than yours (and what to do about it)’.
In recent years, the Exponential Organization (ExO) framework has provided existing companies, ranging from Fortune 500 firms and SMEs, as well as entrepreneurs with a business idea, a roadmap to emulate the success of the world’s fastest growing companies.
