Katherine Gehl is a business leader, author, and the former president and CEO of Gehl Foods, a $250 million high-tech food manufacturing company in Wisconsin. Over the past decade, Katherine has focused on the urgent need for nonpartisan political innovation in America. Michael Porter is the father of modern business strategy and the most cited academic in business and economics. His seminal work, Competitive Strategy, proposed a framework for analyzing industries that has been the definitive approach to business strategy for decades. In 2016 Gehl asked Porter to join her work, and together they published a seminal Harvard Business School report on the nature of competition in politics. They have broadened that work into a book, The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy, which will be released on June 23rd. They have also agreed to donate the proceeds of the book to The Institute for Political Innovation, the organization Katherine has founded to pursue targeted changes to our political system. You will come away encouraged by their ideas for powerful, practical, and achievable solutions.
