What services will I be able to offer as a Certified ExO Consultant?

This is a great lead-in for consultants to start the conversation with clients on why ExO and why they should hire you to help them increase their exponentiality.

Please refer to the help article here.
What if I am absent during the Certification due to prior engagements? Are the calls recorded? Can I catch up if I miss a day?
We encourage you to coordinate with your trainer if this situation occurs. The certification process requires the weekly feedback, if which you are not present for may impact your training. The calls held on Mondays & Fridays will be recorded.
How many hours per week can I expect to dedicate to the program?
8-12 hours/week, around 2-2,5 hours per day.
What is the learning methodology for the Certification?
The ExO Consultant certification uses a very hands on learning by doing approach. Each week there are videos to watch and assignment that are to be completed. These assignments are for a real client. You will perform consulting work for the client in order to apply the model and use the tools as part of the certification course
Do I have to have a client to complete the certification?
Technically no you do not need to have a client in order to complete the certification but you will be required to work with a third party for the hands on implementation of what you are learning. This could be done with a friend or colleague and a fictitious or real business. We highly recommend using a real client as you will benefit from adding value to them. We have had consultant candidates that have received further work from the client they took through the tasks in the certification.
What is the benefit to a client going being a part of the certification?
We've had over 200 client companies inside the programme this year alone and the main benefits are:
- Getting an overview of some of the technological and business trends affecting their industry
- A strategic look at their own business model in relation to adaptability, flexibility and scalability
- Doing an ExQ survey and receiving a debrief from the consultant
- Speaking with one of our community advisors to try out our advisory service
- Walking away with their own 'ExO Canvas' (www.exocanvas.com) with prioritised ExO attributes to focus on and a set of implementation steps.
