When it comes to technology it’s all about keeping current and making sure you don’t lag behind. Law departments are no exception. Often challenges can arise that can have nothing to do with the technology itself, but rather getting the buy-in and adoption of the end-users whose day-to-day lives are impacted the most. Change can be hard. That is why having a well thought out implementation plan should always be at the top of the list when embarking on the path to an effective roll out.
Management strategies implemented before, during and after implementation can maximize user adoption and ROI.
