Course Description

Workflow has evolved from the simple due date monitoring systems of the past to congregated, comprehensive office management systems that can organize your entire firm. We are seeing options ranging from stand alone workflow systems to complete firm management systems and the choices are endless. In this session, we will explore why these systems are in such high demand, some of the successful methods used to implement them and how to get your team to embrace the changes necessary to benefit from them.

Learning Objectives

  • Find out what ground work is necessary before you implement new workflow systems.

  • Discover why investigation of the tools available is necessary to insure successful implementation.

  • Learn how to get teams buy in and the continued benefits from a periodic review of a well thought out workflow system.
