Law firm innovation takes many forms. We need a tool to de-risk and demystify the process.
The above graphic is the Maker’s Matrix©, which is a tool I created to more efficiently categorize, prioritize, and resource innovation projects. This is because innovation in law firms is a nascent field with lots of hype and headlines but remarkably little structure. See, e.g., Bruce MacEwen, “Who’s your Chief Innovation Officer, ” Adam Smith, Esq., Nov. 13, 2019. That’s okay, though. I’m happy for the opportunity to figure it out.
