Simple. Efficient. Powerful.
"Contemporary companies face a radically changed environment. Technology has had a profound impact on business and the economy. In the past 30 years, for example, the internet has facilitated global connection between nearly everybody — and nearly everything. Nearly, because there is still room for fuller and richer connections to everybody and everything."
It's time to build 21st century companies: Learning to thrive in a radically different world
McKinsey & Co.
Our proprietary virtual working group model is always focused on a complex business challenge and built around the expert insights of a world-class thought leader.
Working groups meet twice a month with the leader and invited experts to understand a key issue, co-create deeper insights and establish collaboration opportunities inside and outside the group.
All members are carefully vetted to ensure that the work of the group is beneficial to their sponsor organization and that their participation brings value to all members.
As an added key benefit, membership in any of our group allows a member access to key insights from other groups and from global events, courses and content created for all KATALYST members worldwide.
All members have access to our private member app and integrated collaboration site so they can connect and access all KATALYST videos and content in between group meetings.
