Law Technology News published an article yesterday that is right on target regarding the Surface tablet from Microsoft.
If you’re interested in either technology or using tablets for your work, check out the article.
Here are three minor notes about some points it makes:
OneNote is a killer app. I cannot say that often enough. [...]
By now you’ve likely seen the NY Times article about computers and e-discovery.
For folks in the legal field, the content of the article isn’t news, I trust: Computer analysis is making huge inroads in e-discovery and is in many cases replacing attorneys (and their jobs).1
Think about the change-adoption curve (technically, the innovation-diffusion curve).
This week, I’ve written a series of articles pointing out that Legal Project Management is not dependent on project-management technology.
So what’s the most important thing a project manager can do to improve her use of technology, to use technology better to manage legal projects?
Actually, it’s pretty simple.
I’ll describe it for Outlook, but [...]
eWeek, an IT weekly, just released a survey of the most sought after (paid jobs) computer programming languages.
I was both surprised and intrigued to find that the top three were Java, C, and C++.
They have three things in common, one of which is a meaningful metaphor for LPM.
The names all stem from [...]
Yesterday I introduced a series of articles in which I’ll address two questions:
How would I demo project management tools to an audience of accidental project managers? Can you “demo” great project management itself?
This article begins a short series responding to the first question.
Let me start by defining the audience.
A Key to [...]
In a column I write that deals with business and people-management questions, I described a very effective demo where the demoer showed up his product without appearing to demo it at all.
In response, someone from Planbox, a company that makes project management software, asked, “Do you plan on having a top 10 do’s and [...]
When I was a leader at Microsoft, I created one of the first wall-to-wall-whiteboard conference rooms at the company. The enormous whiteboard (dry erase board) was a huge hit1. And huge was the operative word, since it filled the long wall floor to ceiling.
But it cost a lot of money. We earned it back [...]
No matter where he was or what the situation, Dick Tracy could always use his two-way wrist TV to “teleconference with his office.” (He graduated from the two-way wrist radio in 1964.)
Wouldn’t that be useful today? Airfares are climbing and planes are crowded, and we’re about to have one fewer airline to choose from, [...]
I answered a couple of queries yesterday about aspects of Legal Project Management around tools and techniques. I thought it might make sense to share the answers (concealing, of course, any information that might point to who asked them or in what context.)
Process Mapping Tools
Question: Is there process-mapping software?
Here’s a guide to [...]
A couple of things popped up on my radar today around closing the distance between legal professionals.
One is rooted in technology, the other in psychology (if I had to pick an -ology to create a parallel phrase).
Closing the Physical Distance
I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately — New York last week, [...]
