Making an Impact: Leading Change in Your Organization

Legal Ops teams face increasing pressure to demonstrate the legal function’s value to the business. These teams utilize technology to achieve these goals, and need all levels of support to drive internal change. Without internal buy in, the initiative falls flat and the perception is that you wasted valuable money and resources. It becomes more important than ever to proactively manage change when planning your tech implementation. In this session, we will:
  • Identify the biggest reason why tech projects fail
  • Chart your Change Management maturity
  • Tackle the top barriers to change and how to remove them
