Fundamental changes to our economy mean that business has to live by completely new rules. New business models and platforms of digitalisation are behaving exponentially. This impact is so great that the disruption comes as a surprise. And it is fundamentally changing our lives.
The book “Exponential Innovation” describes the process of developing exponential business models.
Managers should know and master these methods as well as university graduates who are the next generation of experts and decision makers. To achieve this, universities must further develop. They can and should, as in the USA and China, make a contribution to the innovative strength of Europe and Germany.
For this purpose, a concrete plan of action for cooperation between industry and science is proposed. The aim is to develop exponential innovations that result from the interaction of industry and science. We can only catch up with the USA and China if we have a completely new and more efficient science system.
This model of exponential innovation is being put into practice with the help of the HSBA, the Hamburg School of Economics.
SQUARE is the Innovation HUB, wehre Exponential Innovation can be created. Some examples for exponential Busines Modells are demonstrated.
