How We Work With You
Organizations don’t innovate; people do. By following The Experience Praxis Group’s four step process, you will have an organization of inspired and innovative thinkers who have the skills and tools to transform and positively impact your business results.
The Experience Praxis Group works with your organization’s business decision makers to:

During a 2-day workshop, participants experience and learn the I4 Framework™ .
This step-by-step toolkit approach challenges thinking, provides the rationale and instructions for a disciplined approach to innovation.
Expect your employees to be surprised and excited by what they learn and that they, in fact, can be innovators.
Using the I4 Framework™ toolkit, teams apply what they’ve learned to innovate the issue their team is assigned by leadership.
The Experience Praxis Group facilities toolkit activities and coaches teams to push their thinking and stay on track.
Teams present their innovation prototype to leadership for next stage approval.
Your organization “moves the innovation down the road” to implementation.
Two Innovation Options
Two Week Quick Start
Our consultant meets with your leadership to discuss the issues you want teams to work on. Based on that discussion, we make recommendations for team member selection. Next, teams attend the two-day workshop followed by two weeks completing toolkit activities to create an innovative solution. During that time, teams meet twice with the Experience Praxis Group’s consultant who provides coaching, reviews progress, and keeps them on track for success.
Ten Week Intensive
Like the Quick Start, this option includes up-front consulting and the workshop. The Ten Week Intensive option has four scheduled consulting days. Each day includes additional learning, assignments and team presentations of deliverables. Our consultant provides detailed feedback and coaching. At the end of the ten weeks, teams are prepared to confidently present their tested prototype to leadership for next stage approval.
