Increasingly complex times make innovation and collaboration vital to all types of business. Innovation and collaboration are essential components of Design Thinking – effectively integrating the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.
Design Thinking is a contemporary and innovative approach to devising strategy and managing change. It helps people and organisations cut through complexity, innovate, imagine the future and drive a more thoughtful, human approach to business.
It has enabled some of the world’s most successful companies to continuously innovate, adapt and grow - think Google, Apple and Airbnb.
Stanford Law School has in fact integrated Design Thinking into the curriculum - taking a creative, experimental, and user-centred approach to how legal services are provided. Some of the best new services and products are the result of collaborating directly with clients who can provide an invaluable perspective into what really matters to them, resulting in solutions with greater buy-in and support as well as deeper and more enduring relationships.
User-driven legal process design has the potential to radically change the delivery of legal services.
