Change Management and Legal Users: Driving Efficiency and Adopting New Tools to Increase Productivity (Thomson Reuters Webinar)
Recorded On: 09/22/2021
With the proliferation of data, comes the need to adapt and change ways of working to drive value and efficiency. In many ways, the market is responding to that need through the development of new tools and processes designed for legal researchers. Knowledge management professionals and other decision makers are tasked not only with discovering and evaluating those tools, but also the challenge of driving user adoption with a cohort of busy legal professionals who are keenly focused on their day-to-day. Join a panel of experts who will discuss not only how new tools and processes can be applied effectively to the tasks at hand, but also how to drive user adoption to get the most out of them.
- Discover how new tools can be effectively applied to your own work and that of the professionals you support.
- Learn tips, tricks, and best practices for driving users toward the tools they have available.
