Legal Department Operations Roundtable to Focus on Importance and Benefits of Business Process Management

Seminar, to Be Held in Houston on January 24, to Feature Business Process Expert and Harvard Business Review Contributor Brad Power

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2013) - According to Harvard Business Review contributor, consultant and business process expert Brad Power, "The question for top management is no longer whether your organization's processes need to be improved, but rather which ones, how much and when."

This wisdom also applies to law department operations. On January 24, law department operations leaders will meet in Houston to discuss "Trends in Process Management: What Law Department Leaders Can Do Now." The event, hosted by the Legal Department Operations Roundtable, will feature Brad Power, Business Process Expert, and Paul Zengilowski of Onit.

Law department executives have increasingly realized that standard tools such as email, matter or document management systems do not accommodate the work their staff attorneys manage across organizational and geographic boundaries which require enterprise wide collaboration. As their work becomes even more global, time-sensitive and core to their company's competitive advantage, process management has emerged as one of the most important and effective innovations Chief Legal Officers, General Counsel and Law Department Operations Leaders can pursue.

In this seminar, Power will explain the mechanics and benefits of process management for a legal department and explore new technologies that allow law departments to bypass traditional tools that normally require large investments in technology and IT infrastructure. This information and its techniques and strategies will enable corporate law departments to speed the flow of information, enable faster and better decision-making, and improve the quality of service your legal department provides to your business.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Why Process Strategy Matters to Law Departments
  • Process Strategy Best Practices
  • Leading Law Department Process Improvements
  • Technology and Process Improvements
