Purpose: The Working Knowledge Network

Let's work together!

Griffin Groups empowers and streamlines the ways
that agencies, organizations, businesses and individuals can partner 
to share knowledge, become better organized, and solve problems.

Griffin Groups supports your workflows the way that you and your partners want by sharing knowledge online using a suite of familiar tools through a point-and-click interface. Over the past four+ years, awareness of Griffin Groups has spread by word of mouth to be used by thousands of professionals from hundreds of institutions working together in one or more of hundreds of groups
