ABOUT THE INSTITUTE FOR POLITICAL INNOVATION
The Institute for Political Innovation (IPI) is a cross-partisan, not-for-profit organization that contributes theory, scholarship, and strategy to catalyze model, modern political change in America.
IPI is the culmination of a multi-year period of scholarship and research – a pivot toward investment and action – with an immediate, laser-focus on Final-Five Voting™, a system wherein the top five candidates are selected from the primary ballot and ranked-choice voting is used in the general election to ensure that politicians are held accountable for delivering results.
In 2016 Katherine Gehl and Prof. Michael Porter co-authored the seminal Harvard Business School report, Why Competition in the Politics Industry is Failing America: A strategy for reinvigorating our democracy, which reshaped the national conversation on political reform. Katherine and Michael have subsequently broadened that work into a book, The Politics Industry: How... Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy, which was released in June of 2020.
A critical – if secondary – goal is the establishment and furthering of IPI as a thought-leading institution and producer of new research and scholarship.
