How to identify your best opportunities
Too often law firms base their business decisions on little or no objective inputs or analysis – which would be a felony in the practiceof law.
No firm has infinite resources to pursue all possible opportunities. In fact, “doing a little bit of everything” is often a recipe for disaster. Therefore, developing an effective plan often entails saying “no” or “not yet” to some. The question is: how do you decide which opportunities represent the greatest potential for your firm?
We have a toolkit of techniques that help firms objectively identify the most fruitful opportunities and build consensus on where to invest a firm’s limited resources.
We, most assuredly, are not talking about “analysis paralysis;” enough data and insights to make informed decisions.
From online surveys to, say, assess firmwide issues – to one-on-one or group interviews with partners, key stakeholders and external audiences – we have the right tools to unearth key issues and opportunities at your firm. We customize these to yield the best results within your budget or timing constraints.
- Conduct external audits to assess if the outside view jibes with the internal one
- Assess how (truly) collaborative your firm is – with recommendations on how to accelerate cross-serving efforts
- Develop Whitepapers on issues or topics relevant to your clients and prospects
