Innovation has been defined as the successful implementation of creative ideas within an organization resulting in new or better business processes which increase value. Innovation is the key element in aggressively growing the top-line, cutting costs and for increasing bottom-line results. The goal of innovation is positive change to make something better. Innovation leading to increased productivity is the fundamental source of increasing wealth in our economy. Canadian law firms need to embrace innovative thinking in order to contribute to the overall wealth of the Canadian economy by continuing to be vibrant and thriving businesses.
