Don’t just look to the future. Let’s Leap.

Leap by McKinsey works with established organizations to imagine, build, and scale new businesses—and develop the capabilities needed to do it again and again.

Most organizations aren’t built for change. They spend a lot of time talking about it, but don’t always know how to make the first move. And in the meantime, they get left behind.

Many of the world’s most successful organizations take a different path. They build and scale whole new businesses at incredible speed, catapulting themselves into different sectors and markets and cutting across traditional value pools, while leveraging what they already do best.

This approach isn’t easy, but can create tremendous value. This is why Leap by McKinsey exists.
