Measuring for Value: Addressing the Challenges in Measuring Performance Quality In and Outside of the Corporate Law Department
As law departments seek to reduce their legal spend, the question is how to optimize the trade-off between cost and benefits. This requires ever sophisticated metrics in order be successful. The problem is that truly measuring attorney and vendor quality and performance is perhaps the most difficult measurement problem facing the industry. Every law firm and vendor claims to be high quality and efficient. They claim to be providing value. Obviously, the truth value of these claim is difficult to evaluate.

What are the correct metrics? How can one validate those metrics? How can those metrics evolve over time to capture the difficult nuances associated with evaluation question? Is it even possible to direct measure the question? If not, what are the best available proxies?

Integrating In-house Legal and Contract Management Functions – Proactive and Strategic Approaches
The legal contracting process is often seen as a source of conflict and cost, rather than collaboration and value, with lawyers accused of hindering rather than facilitating business growth. Through the design, delivery, and success of strategic contract management, savvy organizations can use contracts to gain competitive advantage. Learn how proactive contract and legal professionals can work together, in harmony, towards common goals in cross-functional teams, while using the latest technology, outsourcing, and other contract management strategies.

It’s About People.

It’s 6:52 a.m., eastern, and I’m sitting in an empty ball room in the Contemporary Hotel at Disney. In a couple of hours, the room will be filled with law department operations personnel as well as attorneys. I will lower the lights, cue the music, and introduce our President. This is Bridgeway Software’s 17th annual conference, of its 23-year existence…CustomerConnect LIVE! 2012.

I mostly do not write about Bridgeway on this blog, because law department operations is NOT all about us, or even technology. It’s about people. It’s about committed professionals seeking to do their best for their law department, for their corporation or government agency. I’m proud to say I’m a part of Bridgeway. In the three years I’ve been affiliated with Bridgeway, helping people become successful in their jobs has been our primary focus.

Like our company culture of “people first”, our 17th annual conference is all about bringing the “people” in our industry, experts and ingenious practitioners, together, that they may have a positive impact on each other. Our line up is incredible and I just want to say, “Thank you!” to our speakers.

I’ve been promoting the first day of our conference on this blog to non-clients as LDO Crash Course. Those who took me up on my offer will enjoy these great speakers (click here to view). To view our full agenda and speakers, visit www.customerconnectlive.com.

And, if you missed this year, save the date for 2013, October 7th – 10th. We’ll be in sunny San Diego!

Top 6 Metrics Every Law Department Should Measure and What They Mean to You
Jason Emanis
We’re giving away a customized benchmark report worth $1,750!

Here a benchmark, there a benchmark, everywhere a benchmark…and so it goes in the corporate legal arena. How do we make sense of it all?

Savvy legal administrators are no longer challenged with having too little data, rather, it often seems that we have too much of it. What’s lacking is the ability to put all the data into proper context to turn it into meaningful information that we can act on.

To help address this challenge, LDO Crash Course™ 2012 is proud to include an informative and interactive session hosted by the foremost legal benchmarking authority, Rees Morrison.

By using real-world examples, Rees will introduce us to the top 6 metrics law departments should measure and how to use these metrics alongside benchmarks to identify your department’s biggest opportunities for improvement.

By filling out Rees’ very brief 8-minute survey here, you will receive a complimentary copy of the latest General Counsel Metrics Global Law Department Benchmarks Report. What’s more, attendees of Rees’ session will have their data included in the live analysis (anonymously, of course) and be eligible to win a free customized report, valued at $1,750.

Take Rees’ survey HERE.

Law Department Operations Crash Course 2012- the One-day Event You Can’t Get Anywhere Else!
Jason Emanis
I searched far and wide for an event to direct my savvy clients focused on improving legal operations, but couldn’t find one. So, I talked my company into creating one. The one-day LDO Crash Course coincides with Bridgeway’s two and half-day annual client conference, now in its 17th year. BUT, don’t worry, you don’t have to be a client to attend, it’s open to corporate executives we know and don’t.

Check out the agenda below and tell me you can afford to miss this once-a-year opportunity! (read more)
