Autonomy is an internally oriented ExO-Tool that facilitates agility and flexibility in your SME-organization.

Self-organizing, multi-disciplinary teams operating with decentralized authority provides the basis for “permissionless innovation” to support exponential growth. Autonomy also increases agility, efficiency, transparency and accountability within an organization.

Key questions that you should be asking yourself:

  • How can we reduce decision-delay or approval-chains?
  • How can we avoid to much management and allow the staff to grow?
  • Is there a framework/tools we could use Objectives and Key Results (OKR), Holacracy etc.?

Autonomy is one out of 10 ExO-techniques that have already helped start-ups grow exponentially.
