9m’s innovation model is more than a process, but a strategy that will help guide your organization into becoming the market leader. It is a research-based methodology that has been validated in the field.


Beginning with culture, 9m diagnoses the current environment and impediments to innovation. Next, the focus moves to customize facilitated events that focus on creative pinnacles in areas that range from strategic planning and business development to problem-solving and product development. With creation comes disruption and 9m shifts its attention to change management planning by guiding clients through a change simulation model. Lastly, 9m helps execute the creation process applying a comprehensive agile project management approach.
