Deception of exponential growth – infographic

Deception of exponential growth. Linear curve, how you think change behave. Exponential curve, how actual change behave. The difference causes early phase disappointment, and late phasechaos, disruption, amazement.

Inspired by @DanielleGeva on twitter we created this infographic. It explains why everyone always gets disappointed in innovative new technology’s lack of impact. And then just as disrupted by its impact when it hits.

Credit for the concept goes to Chris, Exponential curves feel gradual and then sudden, and Salim, Exponential Growth vs Linear Thinking in management teams.
