Core Catalysts is a management consulting firm based in Kansas City, and we serve clients across the U.S. in various industries. Core Catalysts provides services such as process improvement, product/service commercialization, revenue enhancement, financial modeling, program/project management, software selection, enterprise risk management and business performance improvement through a team that is composed of results oriented individuals.

Core Catalysts offers tangible results and real outcomes, not just plans that gather dust on the shelf. We get things done. We bring a consultative and project-based approach created from years of experience and training from some of the premier consulting organizations around the world. And we bring alliances to the table that can augment our team with other skills and locations from around the country.

We solve core problems throughout the organization; problems that are key to the operations of an effective and efficient business. We act as catalysts to drive new solutions, provide new ways of looking at existing business challenges and simply add experiences to our client’s current teams and organization that they can use to improve their own work environment. Our clients realize true and ongoing economic value from our services measured as a multiple of our fees.

Core Catalysts has a vision for a better way to serve clients by being nimble, focused and bringing experienced talent without the big firm fees and overhead. But Core Catalyst’s commitment goes beyond providing its clients the people, technology and resources to address challenges. Recognizing that many of the firm’s clients place a high priority on giving back, Core Catalysts also makes it a priority to support clients’ favorite causes. Sometimes that means the firm’s employees participate in a food drive or volunteer time for some type of event. Other times, the firm writes a check to help with a fundraiser to support a client’s favorite cause. In other words, we care about the communities we live in and contribute our time, treasures and talents in demonstrable ways.

Our focus on our clients is fanatical – they win every time as a result of our engagements. Our people have fun with their work efforts and enjoy the teamwork and accomplishments achieved. Our people learn new skills over time that makes them better and more experienced for the next engagement.
