INTRODUCING THE CUTTING-EDGE
This mid-sized London-based law firm asked for our support in mobilising an internal Task Force created to investigate and assess new trends and thinking for the future of the law firm, in order to develop a blueprint for transformation aligned to strategic objectives.
We developed a series of highly engaging ‘animation sessions’, designed as interactive workshops that introduced the team to cutting-edge thinking on key topics related to the changing role of people, technology, new organisational structures and emerging business models, in order to stimulate and expand ideas, and to support in preparing the ground for change.
DELIVERING VALUE-ADDED OUTPUTS
The programme of sessions was designed to lead the team through a range of topics that, when combined, make up all the key facets to consider when developing the picture of a Future Firm.
Each animation session was constructed to first expose the team to industry-leading thought leadership, research and relevant case study examples for the topic at hand, and then guide them through a series of interactive exercises that used practical frameworks and techniques to produce tangible, high-quality outputs that could be used by the team back inside the firm to garner wider support for their ideas.
WIDENING INTERNAL SUPPORT
The initial programme of animation sessions was instrumental in guiding the activities of the Task Force, enabling new ideas and ways of working to be disseminated across the firm.
In order to further socialise the project’s outputs and learnings, a condensed version of the sessions has also been designed for very senior stakeholders, helping to generate further support for the transformation programme that the Task Force is designing.
