Can Law Firms become Agile? Yes, and it starts with Agile Leaders!
Can law firms really become Agile? At BLG, Canada’s largest law firm, we are experimenting to find out. Having started with our digital innovation function in 2020, at the end of 2022 BLG has over 70 leaders at the Firm trained in Agile Leadership. Agile experiments are now beginning to proliferate.
Our lessons learned so far – the desire for Agility must come from within each of us. It cannot be imposed. But it takes courage on the part of leadership as well as conditions of psychological safety to give teams the autonomy to experiment to find their own Way of Working. Join us as we recount how we have dealt with both the highs and lows of our ongoing journey and hopefully take away some lessons that you can apply within your own organization.
