Introducing OpenExO

13 February 2019 - An announcement from Salim Ismail, Chairman of OpenExO


First of all, thank you so much to all of you who attended the call on January 28 to announce our new brand and main organization OpenExO.

For those of you unable to attend the call, here are the most important announcements:

What is OpenExO?

OpenExO is the result of merging the ExO Foundation and ExO Lever into one single company. OpenExO is now the world’s leading global ExO transformation ecosystem made up of more than 1,000 clients, investors, consultants, coaches, collaborators, tech leaders and innovation specialists. Together we are committed to helping organizations, institutions and people transform for the future by implementing and evolving the ExO model and practices.

Our leadership structure is also evolving

I will stay as the Chairman of OpenExO, Francisco Palao will become the Vice Chairman and Jaroslav Dokoupil will act as the new CEO for OpenExO. You can see all of our leaders and team members on the OpenExO website. We are proud of the amazing team we have!

ExO Sprint Reached Product/Market Fit

After a few years of implementing the 10-week sprint transformation process with large corporations all around the world, we are proud to announce that the process has been validated and works for any kind of industry and any company size. We have automated the process in our ExO Platform and also opened it to the world through the Exponential Transformation book. We believe that every single company has to go through this process to adapt to the world and we would love to help.

New ExO Initiatives coming in 2019

We will be launching ExO Summits, ExO Books, ExO Launchpad, ExO Leadership and other ExO-related initiatives during this year. Stay tuned!

Last, we wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to share with you an article Francisco Palao and I just published called “Forget launching a startup, build an ExO (Exponential Organization)”. We encourage all of you to read and to share. We do believe that 2019 will be the year of ExO and can’t wait to collaborate with all of you to transform the world for a better future.
