Bring structure, a shared understanding, and capability to innovate to the firm in order to drive growth.

What we did for CLayton Utz

Inventium developed and delivered a comprehensive capability building program designed to dramatically increase internal innovation clarity and skill and to get quick runs on the board. As part of this, Inventium:

  • Ran several workshops with all partners across the firm to educate them on the what and how of innovation.
  • Delivered innovation capability building to 55 Innovation Champions, a number that continues to grow every quarter.
  • Lead an “Invention” project on a specific challenge, whereby we identified three breakthrough opportunities for innovation, generated 60+ ideas for their biggest challenge, ran two experiments, and are now providing mentoring to the Innovation Champions in designing further experiments and analysing results.

The Results

  • Aligned the partner group on the importance of innovation and how to get better at it. Inventium’s Ignition workshops delivered a shared understanding and purpose for innovation.
  • Through one of the firm’s first experiments that Inventium helped to lead, the firm made a significant sale through its work on addressing a real client frustration.
  • The firm now has a clear and deliberate approach to coming up with solutions to problems, then testing ideas in a rigorous way without spending much time, money, or effort.
  • Significantly increased firm-wide engagement in innovation.
  • Generated over 90 ideas to one of the specific Innovation Missions Inventium worked on, of which five of those ideas are now in experimentation.

Inventium has added credibility, understanding and awareness to innovation at Clayton Utz. Through Inventium’s training, our Innovation Champions have an in-depth understanding of a repeatable innovation process that is producing tangible results.
