#Asia The Jay Kim Show: Kent Langley explains exponential organisation and why you should care


Sometimes, entrepreneurs miss the forrest for the trees, and sometimes their kids can help then rediscover focus

At around the ages of 5-7, most kids begin to ask their parents, “What do you do for a living?”. All of the children in school are comparing their parents’ job in a nearly universal moment of growing up.

Kent Langley is the Chief Exponential Officer at ProductionScale. He has introduced the idea of ‘exponential organisation’ (the goal of achieving 10x growth at 1/10th the cost) and teaches the fundamentals at Singularity University.

Langley is a firm believer that technology can be used for the greater good and can be the solution to many of the world’s problems.
