Tip of the month: Evaluate results regularly, and learn from mistakes

Once you have established metrics for evaluating the success of your legal project management or business development program, key decision makers within the firm should evaluate results quarterly or on another schedule, to review what worked and what didn’t. In this new, more challenging, world, it is not possible to avoid occasional failures. But it is possible to learn from mistakes and to improve results.


The first Wednesday of every month is devoted to a short and simple tip to help lawyers increase efficiency, provide greater value to their clients and/or develop new business. This month’s tip was adapted from my book Legal Project Management, Pricing, and Alternative Fee Arrangements.
