The Dream

"I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.' I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."

We've come a long way, but still have a long way to go.

Learn to fail/Fail to learn

Projects and initiatives fail for many reasons. Failed communications; uncoordinated leadership; weak planning; resourcing constraints and poor public relations are the ones that Nick Milton lists in his post today. But why do we fail to learn from those mistakes? Nick highlights wisdom from Amy Donahue and Robert Tuohy and I think we can all learn from that. Not reading this post would be a big mistake. Read more at Knoco stories: 5 reasons why organisations don't learn lessons.

The wrong war

The Center for the Study of the Legal Profession at Georgetown University Law Center and Thomson Reuters Legal Executive Institute's "2018 Report on the State of the Legal Market" is out and reaches some urgent conclusions. There are some excellent sections highlighted in this post. "Flat demand for law firm services, declining profit margins, weakening collections, falling productivity, and loss of market share to alternative legal service providers and others, are gradually undermining the foundations of firm profitability." Is your firm fighting the wrong battle? Using the wrong weapons? Read more at Complex Discovery: Too Many Law Firms Are Still Fighting the Last War: "2018 Report on the State of the Legal Market"

Credit for 3 of 4

George Khoury is on point with his three common mistakes law firms make when it comes to cybersecurity. Prioritization is critical. With many firms, like backup and other 'insurance' style issues, the value is only seen AFTER you get hit the first time. Moving to a pessimistic security model is a hot topic these days for law firms. There are many cultural issues to overcome to make that work. And of course, proper implementation is also key. If what you have isn't working right, well, it's not really worth having is it? But one very critical mistake not on George's list is user awareness. Many firms drop the ball in this area, assuming people get, understand and are thinking about security. Trust me. They aren't. Read more at Technologist: 3 Common Cybersecurity Errors Law Firms Make
