Again this week, I thank you for being here!
Today we’ve several articles for you, from the impact of time crystals in organizations and society to the excellent video of Prasad Kamath (Leadership expert) explaining what Outcomes Agility is. If you’re a change consultant or leader, you don’t want to miss this.
I’d like to thank the Enterprise Agility University trainers for their support with high-quality articles throughout the life of this newsletter.
Today, I want to also thank Sandip Rananavare for his video about Enterprise Agility Foundations.
I hope you enjoy it and please don’t forget that you only have 3 weeks left to apply to speak at the Enterprise Agility World Conference 2022 or to volunteer.
One of the biggest challenges enterprises encounter today is how to deal with disruptions caused by exponential change. This video shows how it’s possible to use the concepts of agile results to lead and create more responsive organizations. The video has subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.

These days, there was very important news that concerns us all. It’s about the double exponential rise of quantum computers and their impact on AI and the life of our society. Quantum computers will allow us to perform difficult computations and help us rethink our understanding of basic science or solve difficult problems.
That’s because quantum computers harness the power of quantum mechanics, a branch of physics that explains how the world around us works at the subatomic level.
Google’s quantum computing team made headlines in 2019 when it performed calculations for the first time using a quantum computer that was thought to be impossible for conventional computers to accomplish. This first experiment was meant to prove the technology’s reliability, not so much its speed—and yet it was a successful experiment that began to show that quantum computing is evolving from exponential growth to double exponential growth.
When I wrote my book Leading Exponential Change back in 2018, we estimated (thanks to information from Ray Kurzweil) an exponential curve of how the technology would evolve over the next few years.
However, there’s something that’s changed the picture, and that’s that this curve started becoming now double exponential thanks to a new “technology”. This will significantly impact the growth of artificial intelligence or anything that can run on a computer. And we’ll see these massive changes starting in 2028 (5 years from now). I’m talking about Time Crystals.
A Time Crystal is a new category of matter and the first “out of equilibrium”. It’s perfectly ordered and stable. Like a perpetual motion machine, a time crystal performs eternal cycles between states without consuming energy. Physicists claim to have built this new phase of matter in a quantum computer. And it changes everything and everyone, from private lives to organizations.
We recently saw a new time crystal made of 57 quantum particles, more than twice the size of a time crystal with 20 particles simulated last year. In practice, the time crystals could be used as memory for quantum computers and get those computers finally up and running.
The emerging technology of quantum computing and time crystals will not only revolutionize the speed of computers but also help in the fight against climate change by changing the economics of decarbonization and becoming an important factor in limiting global warming to specific targets by creating new materials.
Recent research shows that those new quantum computers will also be used to simulate battery chemistry in ways that aren’t possible today. We could develop batteries with 50 percent higher energy density for use in heavy machinery or novel and smaller devices.
These days have also seen many new developments in quantum crystals, from the creation of more stable or larger crystals to new experiments that will enable us to understand how they work.
Although the technology is still at an early stage of development, experts estimate that the first generation of reliable quantum computers will be available in the second half of this decade (around 2028).
Quantum computers and time crystals, in turn, will speed up processing and make artificial intelligence a part of our lives. This also means we’ll have artificial brains that can talk, think, or behave like humans sooner than predicted.
It’s clear that society will change faster and faster, and we’ll also have to look for new ways to sustain and operate businesses around the world. It’s time to rethink everything we know and focus on developing the future of companies and societies beyond Agility.
In this video, Sandip Rananavare explains how to go from being an Agile Coach to a Change Consultant. You’ll also learn why this is necessary and what new tools the Enterprise Agility University offers. Contact Sandip for more information about Enterprise Agility foundations if you are in Australia or Enterprise Agility University in the rest of the world. The video has subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ll continue our Enterprise Agility Foundations Training around the world in June and July. Join the leading institution providing leaders, managers, and change consultants with new opportunities to grow their careers. Talk to one of our Certified Partners now and start moving in a new direction.
From Enterprise Agility University, we hope you found our scientific newsletter useful, and we’ll see you next week.
