Design & Facilitation

The creative spark is a pinnacle moment when the lightning bolt of clarity reveals itself. 9m has dedicated 20-years of research and practice on understanding how to enable that moment in others. With research-backed methods and facilitation mastery, 9m will design and facilitate a personalized experience for your team that will unlock the insights and concepts needed to create a disruptive change. This typically takes one to five days in a live session 


Our innovation workshop model focuses on the participant and their experience. This research-based model has been refined to enable greater levels of innovation and openness within the participant corps. Each session is personalized toward each objective and organization. Instead of applying a standardized facilitation template, 9m Consulting uses guiding principles to design the optimal event for the team. 


  • Full team participation, engagement, & empowerment
  • Incorporating multiple perspectives & leveraging the full talents of your organization
  • The process of bringing ambiguous concepts to actionable plans 

Explanation of the 9m Innovation Workshop Model


The 9m Innovation model is built on the foundation of user experience to help unlock the insights that the team has.  It focuses on eight key phases:

  • Pre-Session
  • Arrival
  • Icebreaker
  • Introduction
  • Problem Definition
  • Innovation
  • Closing
  • Follow-Up

Each phase is broken down into the ideal participant emotional experience, the accomplishments of the phase, and the variety of actions to help facilitate that process.
