In this ‘How They Did It’ podcast episode we speak with the Head of Innovation Services at Allens, Liza Greenwood. At Allens, Liza leads strategic transformational programs for lawyers, focusing on innovation skills development and behavioural shifts – leading with the mindset of “getting better at getting better”. In an exciting time for law and innovation, we discuss the emergence of design thinking in the legal industry and new legal tech on the rise including:

•	Overcoming time constraints, ‘lawyer mindset’ and perfectionist mentalities to curate a culture of collaborative innovation
•	The importance of capability building – including an inspiring story of how one Junior lawyer taught a whole new group how to adopt design thinking
•	The innovation time bank – an organisational incentive to breed creativity and change the culture on time constraints
•	Some of the legal tech solutions being developed at Allens and how concepts could apply to other industries

Liza Greenwood has over 20 years' experience in the legal industry and specialises in innovation, strategy, change management and project management. Managing a team of innovation experts, she employs best practice methods (design thinking, lean startup and agile) to coach partners and lawyers to surface problems, discover solutions and deliver value to the firm and their clients.
