The legal industry now places efficiency on equal footing with quality.  In response, law firms consistently throw around terms like legal project management, agile, scrum, process improvement, Lean and Six Sigma.  But is a label enough to demonstrate an ability to manage work efficiently?  Is something more needed?

This webinar will investigate new and progressive measures, regardless of labels, that can demonstrate an outside counsel’s commitment to efficiency and will provide you with an important take-a-way, a scorecard that you can immediately implement to both measure your outside counsel and help them improve.    Links to materials for download—presentation and scorecard–can be found below.
