Essential reading for those wishing to understand how organisations can achieve extraordinary growth and efficiency.

Exponential Organisations provides several examples of real world successes, and converts these success stories into clear steps for others to apply. Productivity growth, a debate going back to the founding of economic thought, is tackled here and represents a great opportunity for business and academia to consider how much potential there is for extraordinary productivity growth based on this 'exponential' method, perhaps this will rewrite the way we think about economics.

When the public sector embraces exponential methods, vastly increasing its services at ever decreasing costs, public debt reduces and fiscal stability has a greater chance than every before. Important to watch the blind side here too, i.e. the reduction of the middle class through rapid implementation of disruptive methods and associated technologies, which could further exasperate growing inequality. Forecasting how things will be in 2020, 2030, ...2050 as we embrace waves of disruption is a real challenge, and this book helps us do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Achievable optimism, 15 May 2012
Abundance is about what can be achieved, provided we set the right goals.

There are inevitably political and bureaucratic hurdles before these goals come to fruition, however, hurdles are for jumping over, not directly into, and given the track record of the prime author Peter Diamandis along with his detailed derivation as to the logic behind the arguments put forward, there sure is a basis here for optimism.

Well worth a read.
