Innovation has never been as important to law firms as it is at the moment. “The sector is very competitive and if you stand still, people will pass you.” says Jonathan Patterson, who also shares his insights on the importance of innovation being more than just a checklist of things to have, but rather being hard-wired into the business strategy. It’s based on creating an organisational culture of innovation and capturing ideas from across the whole organisation.

Jonathan also speaks about Engine 1 and Engine 2 theory, which is based on having a structure to capture and action sustained and disruptive innovation. DWF Ventures have developed a structured way to categorise people’s skill sets and identify people contributing to both: Engine 1 and Engine 2 innovations.
