DLA PIPER ALUMNI Location: United States

This webinar is the fifth of our 2022 WIN webinar programme, which is offered as part of our global WIN (What In-house lawyers Need) programme.

As many organisations implement permanent flexible working policies, there is more of a desire than ever before to optimise ways of working to ensure the most effective business outputs.

In this session, we guide you through the key principles of design thinking that can be implemented throughout your working day to generate curiosity, creativity and eventually a shift in culture. This includes:

  • digging deeper with the questions you ask to better understand the ‘why’ behind the needs of your client;
  • thinking outside the box and putting yourself in your clients shoes to develop innovative solutions;
  • holding engaging and effective meetings filled with interactivity and creativity; and
  • communicating more visually and with rapid prototyping to find a solution that truly solves your clients issues.

Please note, these webinars are only available to in-house lawyers and due to the popularity of our programme, webinar spaces will be prioritised for registered WIN members. If you are not registered for WIN, you may be placed on a waiting list. To register for WIN, please click here.
