Strategic Planning

Planning Process

Creativity needs vision, vision needs a plan. We distill action out of creative ambiguity. 

Our GTP planning model combines elements of traditional and agile project management that establishes a direct line from concept to completion but also has built-in flexibility to continue the innovation process during project execution. 9m Consulting is not made up of knowledgeable salesmen, but of experts in the innovation domain, our focus is on the issue and not on the 2nd sale in trying to create a continuous revenue stream. The goal of the GTP model is to train the client on the approach and to build their own level of independence.
