KPIs and analytics
Data analytics can drive intelligent decision making. It offers the chance to save time, money and gain a competitive advantage, whilst evidencing your department’s value-add to the business.
By looking at historical data, you can extrapolate lessons learned and apply best practice for the future. Matter progress can be tracked against targeted timelines, outcomes and spend. Resourcing strategy can be designed around key data insights and legal department priorities can be aligned to and tracked against the businesses’ strategic objectives.
Appropriate KPIs supported by data can help you to better understand and articulate:
- The level of demand for legal services at any given time;
- The turnaround time of different types of matters (including whether the cause of this is legal or the business);
- How your matters are being resourced; and
- Your legal spend, both internally and externally and ultimately identify opportunities, introduce efficiencies and evidence your team’s value-add to the business.
