Description

Implementing legal technology is a high-priority in most companies and law firms. However, even as technology advances exponentially implementation is often failing. When the route of the problem is discovered, it typically comes down to process and not the technology itself. In order to facilitate legal tech implementation within an organization, you need to be equipped with the appropriate resources and tools. This interactive session will examine different methodologies from lean law to six sigma for legal tech implementation.

This program was recorded as part of ALM & Corporate Counsel's Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference on October 16th, 2019.
