P3® PRE-CONFERENCE SESSIONS
Monday, May 14
9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Presenters: Catherine Alman MacDonagh, ESQ. and Timothy B. Corcoran
Today's professionals are faced with new challenges and opportunities to help their firms and departments deliver greater value. Whether you are a service provider or a professional in a law firm or legal department, there is increasing pressure for you and your organization. If you want to find out how to be more efficient, develop and employ strategies and tactics based on the client perspective, and reconnect costs to the value received, this introduction will help you understand that there is a way to do all of this - and much more - in ways where everyone wins.
Legal Lean Sigma® and project management are not just about doing more with less; they are about doing the right things and doing them right.
In this session, you'll examine how process improvement helps to determine the best way to carry out a certain kind of work to produce efficiency, excellent quality and service, high probability of successful outcomes, predictability, and greater satisfaction. Through project management, you'll ensure that you are using your best processes and applying them appropriately to actively manage projects and deliver what is most critical for success, on time and under budget. In this interactive course, you'll take part in experiential learning, table work and discussions.
And you'll learn how they are inextricably linked to what we call the P+ Ecosystem, which includes pricing and performance management!
Highly interactive, with exercises, simulations, and videos.
12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Presenters: Ryan McClead, Kristina Lambright, ESQ. and Mike Wong
Delivering legal services in an accurate, efficient and consistent way is critical. How can you apply expert reasoning and automation technology to achieve this across the most common law firm tasks?
Join Perkins Coie's Kristina Lambright, Director of Pricing and Legal Project Management, and Neota Logics' Ryan McClead, VP, Strategy and Client Engagement, and Mike Wong, VP Business Development, as they review common use-cases for expert systems in the legal industry. Then, with help from workshop attendees the group will collectively build out three apps in real time. The apps will provide automated advice on:
- M&A (need to choose most common request – buy/sell side; public vs. private company)
- IP (IPR)
- Basic Litigation Budget
3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Presenters: Joshua Kubicki and Kim R. Craig, PMP, LSSBB
Many within the P3 community are change-leaders or change-influencers within their organizations. For those in this role, typically, the culture they find themselves in is not one open to change. To succeed, they need a specific set of skills, tools and techniques to overcome those who want to stop them (the antibodies!). They need to act and think like intrapreneurs. Intrapreneurship offers the change-minded a chance to scale an idea into a successful venture by being an influencer for change from within.
This workshop, will be run by Josh Kubicki and Kim Craig of Seyfarth Shaw. They have drawn on their respective experiences and insights from advising lawyers, law firms, corporate counsel and other service providers, to design a workshop that will turn the participant into a better-equipped and enabled INTRAPRENEUR.
