Word of the Day - Efficiency

Its always interesting to me to watch trends that roll through the blog-o-sphere. The latest (although not a new topic) - efficiency. Efficiency can be defined as "accomplishing a job or task with a minimum expenditure of time and effort while producing the highest possible quality of product".. Simple enough.

Articles about that focus on efficiency are coming in. Thanks to Michael Barrons for this insightful article describing a 'blueprint' or framework to help drive efficiency in your firm. The framework is about fostering the notion of efficiency, and then executing.

P.S. In my humble opinion, artificial intelligence will ultimately mean leaps in efficiency as the routine building blocks of any law practice in every matter (open a matter, docket dates, research issues, draft a documents, review documents, evaluate alternative strategies) become automated in ways we cannot yet even imagine..

Whats the One Thing I Can Do to Win Your Business

The Prosperoware team and Ben Weinberger presented a high-value webinar event yesterday, which I hope you all attended. The video-on event was a discussion panel including several folks from corporate law departments.

I had the opportunity to ask the panel the following question.. What is the one thing I can do to win your business? The answer - "demonstrate your value to my team".... and more specifically, do a better job of responding to RFPs.

I have written about this in the past, and want to emphasize that - if your RFP responses are more than 15% boilerplate - you are wasting your time and - more importantly - the recipients time.

An RFP response is a pretty big deal. So choose carefully because a good response means a significant investment of time and effort.

Good responses require background research to identify key industry trends, and key company trends. They require creative thinking (often a team effort) about current state and future risks. They require innovative thinking about risk mitigation (less law is better law). And they require insights into how the recipient law department functions so that you can suggest ways your firm can augment the value of the law department. The sum total - demonstrating the value you bring to the table.

Like to send documents in PDF format because they can't be changed? News-flash: without proper security, a PDF can be edited in much the same way that an MS-Word file can be edited...
