The Klapper Institute's proven approach to develop execution excellence


Developed with innovation experts from MIT's Media Lab, The Klapper Institute is an approach to problem-solving and innovation that inspires a mindset shift at all levels of the organization to enable clients to achieve execution excellence as a core competence.


The KI takes clients through a proprietary, four-step process called The KI way


  • Focus on an ambitious, seemingly unachievable goal that will be a game changer for your business.
  • Immerse a cross-functional team in a two-day experential Corporate Lab that leads a model company through a three-year business transformation.
  • Apply the knowledge, thinking, techniques and methods to blue chip challenges, and work with a dedicated KI consultant to deliver a pilot solution.
  • Embed the new competencies in your organization through a licensing and training approach that can scale problem-solving skills for other business challenges.
