We are passionate about ensuring our clients are equipped and ready to meet the challenges of today. We transition in-house legal teams from not knowing where to begin, to a planned and fit-for-purpose transformation journey. We equip teams with the requisite skillset, and provide ongoing coaching and mentoring as required. Our workshops and masterclasses provide legal teams with pathways, knowledge and the confidence to undertake their transformation journeys.
Our team holds qualifications in Legal Project Management, Lean Six Sigma, Design Thinking, Continuous Improvement, Agile Project Management, Leadership and Mindset coaching and mentoring. Our delivery approach draws upon best practice techniques, tools, and methodologies, in order to deliver solutions that are uniquely tailored to the needs of your team, your stakeholders, and broader organisation.
Unique in the market, our Legal Project Management workshops and training are independently endorsed by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM). They offer a foundational understanding of Legal Project Management techniques, which are designed to bring sustainable efficiencies. They include practical hands-on activities, and, like all our battle-tested services, has been designed to meet the specific needs of legal teams.
Our Legal Project Management workshops leverage Agile Project Management practices and techniques, and Design Thinking and Lean principles. They are supplemented with a suite of sophisticated project management tools, and include best-practice guidance on collaboration platforms, as well as the Microsoft Office 365 and Power Platform suites of products.
By focusing on Continuous Improvement frameworks and Design Thinking techniques, our skills masterclasses are based on the frameworks we apply when undertaking our transformation initiatives. These masterclasses will provide your team with a baseline understanding of your key transformation areas, together with guidance on how to move from ideas to implementation.
We provide your team with the ability to employ creative frameworks for the resolution of complex and persistent legal services challenges. At the end of our masterclass, you will have established a baseline of transformation initiatives, together with a pipeline of implementable solutions.
We consider mindset development to be a core capability for the lawyer of the future, as this provides a foundation for high performance: the right mindset is essential to building a high-performing team, and for driving transformation.
Our leadership programmes focus on the ways in which leaders can build their capabilities in times of disruption, and when navigating complex landscapes with multiple stakeholders. Our programmes enable leaders to identity, implement, and embed the most effective and appropriate leadership models to underpin high performance in in-house legal teams.
At G+T Innovate, we specialise in cultivating high-performing teams, through developing leadership and transformation mindsets. This can be tailored to align with the key objectives of your internal capability development programme.
Our team has worked with a variety of in-house teams, both domestically and internationally. We have extensive experience in delivering best practice, tailored to your industry, organisation, and team.
To deliver meaningful and sustainable change, the efforts of legal transformation initiatives must align to your organisation’s commercial strategy and overarching values, behaviours and vision. We offer guidance and structure during the formative stages of the transformation journey, ensuring alignment with organisational strategy and the drivers for change.
Transformation initiatives that stop at the needs of internal stakeholders are at risk of not delivering to customer-centric goals - usually embodied in your organisation’s vision and values statements. We work with you to map the range, frequency and complexity of your day-to-day legal work-types to the needs of your team, your stakeholders, and your organisation’s customers.
Our strategy development framework is comprehensive, and addresses governance, risk management, technology optimisation, and the development and tracking of success metrics. We work with you to identify pathways and transformation initiatives that are sustainable and implementable, alongside the delivery of your core legal services.
Maintaining a scalable, specialist resourcing model can be challenging for in-house teams at the best of times. In-house teams responding to the organisational call for innovative solutions and services must also create space, grow skills, and nurture specialisations to maintain pace, and deliver sustainable outcomes.
Using our experience from previous engagements, we work with you to design optimised workflow-resourcing solutions, addressing both legal and non-legal functions. Our approach is specific - it is informed by data, and is influenced by your environment.
In our experience, resourcing can be addressed through a range of measures, including self-help tools, technology platforms, and alternative resourcing providers. Our team can help to identify your needs, guide your decision-making, and successfully implement your chosen solutions.
There is little point in implementing new technology without first addressing your process and user needs. Having an efficient, robust, and streamlined process will mitigate the risk of errors, generate insightful data, ensure that your choice of technology is fit-for-purpose, and allow you to focus on high-value legal work. Our team has streamlined and redesigned legal processes, ranging from legal triage and procurement, to complex negotiation and transactional processes.
Using frameworks like Lean and Design Thinking, we can help you to map and redesign your legal processes. We work with you to design user-centric templates and playbooks, to enable consistency in the delivery and quality of legal services, improved outcomes, and faster negotiations.
We regularly work with, test, and pilot leading legal technology products, including document and matter management platforms, contract analytics systems, automation and decision-based workflow platforms, and co-authoring and collaboration tools. We take a keen interest in platforms utilising artificial intelligence and machine learning to enhance the delivery of legal services. We are at the forefront of discussions on the maintenance of professional privilege when using advanced technology platforms, as well as on issues pertaining to security and privacy.
Our depth of experience and product knowledge enables us to offer targeted legal technology assistance. We leverage technology to unlock and optimise greater efficiencies, as well as to enable improved collaboration and communication within your team, and with your stakeholders.
Our service spans the full spectrum of the productive process, including consideration of technology options that are available within your organisation, but that are not in use by your legal team. We can guide you to learn how to maximise the benefits of those available technology options, and how to embed those options within your team.
Our team has extensive experience in optimising available technology options and knowing when to implement new tools. A considered technology plan is critical to enhancing your capabilities and maximising the value that your legal function contributes to the wider organisation.
We can review your current process for undertaking and managing legal work, and identify how technology can assist in unlocking efficiencies and enabling new capabilities. This could encompass developing apps for in-house use, streamlining your existing workflows, revising your management of documents and/or information, implementing new technology, or reviewing your use of technology that you already have in place.
As the legal technology market continues to grow, so too does the considerable overlap and ambiguity between products and services, and the understanding of what they deliver. Choosing the right product for the right use case is a critical step in the deployment of legal technology, and we can help your team to set itself up for success.
We understand the intricacies of the deployment process, and have extensive experience in sourcing, assessing, evaluating, and using legal products - this includes running pilot projects, building business cases to demonstrate value to the broader organisation, and negotiating with vendors. We have in-depth knowledge of what works and what doesn’t work, and how to employ combinations of products and services to get from where you are, to where you need to be.
In addition to assisting you to choose the right legal technology products for your needs, we can also assist you to design and configure those products in order to make the most of them. We work with you to examine the actual and potential uses of technologies, to ensure that you get the most from your investments, and leverage them to their full extents.
We have considerable expertise in automating and integrating various legal technology platforms. We do that with a view to harmonising your internal processes and information flows so that they come together to form a cohesive whole. Our full-service approach can also assist to improve the way in which you interface with those various processes and information flows, for example, through custom design of decision-logic apps and expert systems. In doing so, we evaluate against your usual practices, to ensure that they work well within your existing operating environment, and within your organisation more broadly.
Transformation is the harbinger of change. How well you plan for and manage the impact of transformative change is directly linked to the success of your transformation efforts. Having a clear understanding of how change is usually managed within your organisation, as well as the reach and impact of your transformation initiatives, needs to underscore your change management strategy.
Successful management of change within an organisation creates a positive team-building opportunity, and results in less resistance to the introduction of new ways of working. Done right, this can lead to a team culture that embraces change, with better uptake and results from your new tools, technologies, processes, and structures.
Our team is experienced at designing change management plans, identifying effective implementation strategies, and smoothing the transition pathway from current state to future state. Alongside the practical aspects of change management and implementation plans, we focus on the importance of the people side of change. Growing the right mindset within individuals and teams leads to a culture that is amenable to, and can thrive as a result of, change. The success of your transformation initiative is measured by a variety of factors, including how well your team, and your stakeholders, respond to the impact of change by the way in which they work. Critical to successful change is the ability of your team to both embrace the initial change, and to then sustain that change.
We can partner with you to address all aspects of change management, including leadership capability, strategy development, configuration and testing, product training, communications, and rollout.
We know that change is not always straightforward, and that best-laid plans can sometimes be derailed. Our implementation advisory and coaching service provides support during the implementation stages, during your dealings with your chosen technology provider, as well as in the training and on-boarding of internal stakeholders.
We leverage our experience to steer you through the range of expected challenges and obstacles. We can support you to resolve, address, and mitigate the challenges and obstacles unique to your environment, and we can coach and mentor your team across the breadth of your implementation journey. We work to ensure that your transformation initiatives are properly integrated within your existing practices, and within your organisational structures.
