Effective lawyering requires more than stellar legal skills and an ability to work with others. Clients expect lawyers to have deep “business” understanding in order to add “value”— to provide relevant and useful legal services. Lawyers must demonstrate strong commercial acumen and an ability to be a strategic problem solver. In addition, clients expect their lawyers to have the capability to design and operate a legal services organization that both deliver value to clients and is sustainable. What skills are necessary to carry out these complex roles and responsibilities? How does a lawyer go about developing them? This workshop introduces lawyers to models and tools that can be deployed to help them think and act with the business and strategic acumen that organizations seek in their legal advisors and future leaders.
- Understand two basic business models and how they apply to both business organizations and legal services organizations (e.g., implications for strategy, client engagement, delivery, branding or marketing, investments, innovation, pricing etc.)
- Understand and apply the choice of “value disciplines”, which helps businesses to understand what creates differentiation so that they may make more informed investment and operational decisions
- Understanding different types of “innovation”, and the considerations in choosing which innovation category to pursue in order to differentiate from competitors
- Understand and apply the three key components of a successful strategic and organisational design model (Strategy, Offerings and Infrastructure), and how they can be used to help design and operate successful businesses, including legal services organisations
