We’re pleased to announce that Caroline Ferguson has been promoted to Business Transformation and Innovation Director - effective from 1 December.

Caroline is a leading light in legal innovation, both within New Zealand and internationally. She is a recognised expert in project design in the legal sector, particularly involving technology-focused solutions, and has a focus on process improvement, legal project management, lean/agile approaches, design thinking and change management.

Chair, Anne Callinan, says the promotion reflects Caroline’s valuable contributions to the organisation and the increasing importance of this area to our overall strategy.

“Caroline has been an outstanding champion for implementing legal innovation and ensuring our team members and clients are engaged with transformation processes,” says Callinan.

“I’m delighted to recognise Caroline with this promotion, and look forward to working with her in driving the initiatives which will keep us on the cutting edge of legal service delivery.”

Since joining Simpson Grierson, Caroline has led company-wide initiatives to trial, and implement, processes and technologies focussed on optimising legal service delivery.

She has also been the driving force behind our Innovation Capability Programme - building an innovation culture and embedding process improvement across Simpson Grierson.

In addition, the business transformation team have also been assisting our clients’ in-house teams with their business transformation agendas, through the Legal Innovation Workshop series - which helps them to develop capacity and meet their emerging and evolving challenges.
