Tip of the month:  Improve planning before scheduling an internal team meeting

Before you schedule an internal team meeting, outline a quick agenda that lists exactly what you want to accomplish.  Then re-consider whether you need a meeting to reach these goals.  If you do, set the shortest possible time for the meeting, and stick to your agenda and time limit.  (This may or may not apply to client meetings.  The client is always right, and may prefer a different style.)

The first Wednesday of every month is devoted to a short and simple tip like this to help lawyers increase efficiency, provide greater value to their clients and/or develop new business. For more about this tip, see our Legal Project Management Quick Reference Guide.
