Exponential maps arise naturally in the contexts of Lie theory and connections on smooth manifolds. I will explain how exponential maps can be understood algebraically and how these maps can be extended to graded manifolds. As an application, we give a new construction of Dolgushev-Fedosov resolutions for graded manifolds.
