When there is a new innovative idea, you want to champion it and deliver on it as fast as possible, but in a responsible way. In this podcast, we will discuss what are some best practices for keeping stakeholders engaged while meeting firm governance standards and security requirements.
Questions from Dan to Nikki:
-What methods do you use to solicit ideas?
-How do you vet a pie in the sky idea vs. something practical, especially when it may be something deep in the weeds of a legal practice? (Relatedly, how do determine if an innovative idea is one attorney’s dream but not universal?)
-When do different stakeholder groups get involved in the project? Are ideas vetted through risk, information governance, finance, etc. before they are PoC’d?
-How do you productize your innovative projects?

-With COVID-19 forcing everyone to work from home for an extended period of time, do you think we’ll see more legal departments allowing employees to work remotely some or all of the time?
-Will any process changes necessitated by the pandemic carry over long-term? For example, will more lawyers become comfortable with e-signed documents.
