Agile Productivity for Legal Professionals
Harness Agile tools to become a powerhouse of productivity, optimize your resources, and return low-stress balance to your day.
Welcome to Agile Productivity for Legal Professionals. In this course you will learn how to become a powerhouse of productivity using simple tools and just a few small tweaks to how you approach your daily workload.
You'll emerge with renewed energy around the potential of your practice, a solid understanding of the barriers to achieving flow in your workday (and how to remove them), and a hands-on methodology that you can implement in as little as 10 minutes that will give you back hours of productive time.
- We'll start by acknowledging the five sources of time-theft and productivity drain that are preventing you from getting more things done. As the saying goes, "know thy enemy—" understanding these foes of productivity is the first step in knowing how to defeat them (or at least how to hold them at bay).
- Next I'll introduce three factors from project management that govern how much you can realistically accomplish in a given period of time. The second half of "know thy enemy" is "know thyself," and understanding the limits and opportunities for accomplishing your goals will help you embed practices for optimizing your personal workflow.
- Then we'll introduce Kanban methodology, specifically a version known as Productivity Kanban that will help you harness your brain's innate visual pathways to prioritize your most important tasks. You'll learn the 5 "rules" of kanban, how to leverage your existing resources to power an agile workflow, and specific steps you can take to make small, iterative improvements that will snowball into massive gains over time.
I've helped thousands of legal professionals get more out of themselves and their practices using Agile methodologies, and I'm offering this class for the first time completely free because I've seen how powerful these practices can be.
I've made it my personal mission to help legal professionals build practices that are profitable, scalable, and sustainable, and I know that these tools can help you and your team progress down all three of those paths.
To be honest, however, I'm not doing this just for you—I'm doing it for your clients too. You see, I think the legal system overall is broken, or at least under substantial strain, and it is hurting providers and clients alike. Access to Justice is at an all-time low (and it is getting worse), and lawyers and their teams are struggling with burnout, depression, substance abuse, and worse. (I'm not including citations here, but I'm happy to provide them if you want proof of these claims).
Call me corny, but I'm a true believer in the power of legal professionals to do good in the world. Like many of you, I went to law school to make a positive impact on the world, only to be frustrated by the inefficient realities of legal practice. Unlike most of you, however, I spent a decade in the technology industry before becoming a lawyer. If lawyers are often thought of as the "no" people (sometimes unfairly), technologists are the "yes we can" crowd. And they've developed tools and practices to make that attitude a reality.
They know how to make themselves and their work scale for maximum impact, and knowing their tools has given me a crazy idea: What if lawyers did the same thing?
So here's my "why" (as in why I do what I do): I believe I can improve the overall capacity of the legal system by improving the efficiency of the legal professionals who work within it. If I can help law practices optimize their resources to do more with the tools they already have, hopefully they'll use at least part of that capacity to help more people. More lawyers, helping more people, at scale, means more access to justice for people who need it.
Better yet, I know that those professionals will find more profit and improved sustainability in the process.
It isn't magic—it requires learning the tools and doing the work—but the results can feel magical. I've helped thousands of legal professionals in scores of practices unlock their true potential, and this course gives you the core tools you need to start your own transformation.
