Why linear thinking is outdated in the exponential age

The exponential progress presents businesses and management with new challenges. Planning action needs to be much more agile in order to respond adequately to current changes and new dynamics. In an interview with Learning Insights, Gerd Bührig of Futur/io explains why businesses and management need to think differently in the exponential age and what this has to do with the term “moonshot thinking”.

Gerd Bührig has worked in various national and international companies for many years, including the Bertelsmann SE, and today is a keynote speaker, consultant and coach for top executives. In addition, he experiments with new learning formats for businesses.
