Change management can be a valuable tool in your arsenal to delivering successful legal operations initiatives
Change in business is inevitable, and the in-house function is no exception. In fact, In-house teams are undergoing more change than ever due to cost pressures, new technologies and ways of working and the expectation that legal teams operate not only as risk managers but also deliver more strategic, business orientated advice. Yet, when delivering change projects, the focus tends to be on the operational doing and the end goal, rather than considering how impacted stakeholders will respond to the change.
Effective change management is a key enabler to the success of your legal operations projects and initiatives and therefore complements each of our other services offerings. However, it can also be provided as a standalone service to ensure the success of your legal operations transformation journey.
