  • How To…Use Change Management To Work From Anywhere (10/20/20)

    Includes Credits

    The change management process empowers organizations to remodel existing operating procedures, embrace innovations, and adjust to the ongoing needs of flexible workspaces.

    The change management process empowers organizations to remodel existing operating procedures, embrace innovations, and adjust to the ongoing needs of flexible workspaces. This includes the adoption of legal technology and case management software, especially in the face of working remotely. Not only will adopting cloud-based software give attorneys the ability to work from anywhere, but law firms that adopt legal technology will also outperform non-adopting practices in the coming years. With that in mind, one question remains: How can law practices optimize their tech stack and manage the changes that accompany it? This program explains it all.

    Speaker: Dorothy Radke, Director of Strategy and Communications for SimpleLaw, a provider of case management software, has an extensive background in change management and technology. Leveraging her educational background which includes a Masters of Management with concentrations in Marketing and Organizational Change from Northwestern University Kellogg Graduate School of Business, Dorothy has successfully led change initiatives for organizations of few to many. The focus of the change initiatives has been increasing personal connection and reducing mundane tasks using the power of the ever-evolving capabilities of technology.
