Overview

In millennia past, only “kings, pharaohs and emperors” had the resources to attack society’s largest problems. With the Industrial Revolution, power diffused to the new captains of industry who had the financial and intellectual capacity to expand society’s infrastructure and modernize production. Today, anyone with a great idea, passion and commitment “has access to the technology, minds and capital” needed to turn that idea into a reality.

In the past, commerce basically followed “linear growth”: the idea that progress occurs in small, steady steps. However, rapid advances in technology catapulted linear growth into the new “compound doubling” realm of “exponential growth.” The “Six D’s of Exponentials” model explains its power. As it adheres to the cumulative power of exponential development, the last three D’s are “far more potent” than the first three:

“Digitalization” – The chain reaction resulting from advances in information technology starts here and makes collaboration easier.

“Deception” – Growth is so tiny at this stage that it’s hard to see and appreciate.
