Runtime: 1 hour
Recorded: May 22, 2019


As part of a broader corporate team, legal departments have to report to C-suite executives on their efficiency, budgets, and resource allocation. But providing these performance metrics is not always a simple feat. Legal departments likely need to pull information from a variety of data sources, which can create confusion as the data often becomes difficult to interpret. So what’s a legal department to do?

In this session, GCs and corporate legal department leaders will discuss how to create a foundation to support performance metrics in your organization, how to discern all of the data, types of technology that can be used, and how to utilize the data to improve efficiency in the department and report back to the C-Suite.

This program was recorded as part of ALM and Corporate Counsel's 19th Annual SuperConference held on May 22nd, 2019.
