Published: 10 Aug 2017 Average Rating: 4.3 / 5 Print

Author: Larry Bridgesmith

The 2008 Recession forced a reset in the delivery of legal services. Clients, especially corporate clients, have assumed the leadership in forging new legal service delivery models. Technology is also impacting the manner in which legal services are delivered. Perhaps no area of legally related work will be impacted more than contract management.

Project management practices and process improvement have found their way into the contract management arena promoting an efficiency and cost saving priority. Technology advances ranging from artificial intelligence to the Bitcoin enabling blockchain technology are poised to radically alter the contract management processes.

This Ask the Expert session will feature a leader in legal efficiency management and technology development. We will explore how legal project management and supporting technologies are meeting a need contract managers will soon come to rely on.
