Excited to announce that I’ll be facilitating the C4 Conference for the Association of Legal Administrators in Boston September 18-20, 2019.
Law is full of so-called “wicked problems” – problems that are difficult to solve because of contradictory or changing information and where more than one solution may be possible. Legal – like many other sectors – is undergoing fundamental shifts as a result of radically disruptive forces such as technology, outsourced labor, and mobile and cloud computing, the rise of big data and more. The current legal landscape is ripe with wicked problems and they’ll be increasingly common going forward.
Legal professionals who are equipped with a design thinking methodology will be better positioned to survive and thrive in today’s professional ecosystem.
I’ll kick off the event on Thursday morning with a background and overview of the design thinking methodology. We’ll then spend the next day and a half working on four “wicked problems” developed by the staff and others involved in planning C4. We’ll wrap on Friday afternoon with a pitch contest and crown a winner.
Legal administrators are the workhorses of the legal sector and I’m excited to be a part of this event and help them understand and apply principles of design in their work.
Join us on September 18-20, 2019 in Boston at C4, the legal industry conference.
