Following yesterday's post on law firms that are starting to take an innovative approach to client service I received information about Morris, Manning & Martin's project management approach to the practice of law. You can read more about their project management philosophy here.
According to the firm's web site: "We believe that it simply isn’t enough for a transaction to be completed on favorable legal and business terms. If the transaction is not completed timely and within reasonable fee expectations, then the transaction cannot be considered a success. Project management, as a means to promoting completion of transactions on time and on budget, is an essential component to delivering value-added legal services."
It's great that we're starting to see some firms adopt practices like Six Sigma and disciplined project management that should result in better outcomes and better value for their clients.
