The ‘why’ and the ‘how’ of legal process automation, plus a case study.
The era of legal innovation is now. At its core, legal innovation is based on increasing the efficiency of legal services and processes, thereby adding value to the client and the organization. Business process automation technology fits squarely within that philosophy. By increasing flow and eliminating the many waste components present in legal processes, you can create efficiencies and add value. We will discuss a case study of a law firm automation project.
Using process risk analysis to determine the starting point of digital transformation.
Process Risk Analysis (PRA) is a method of examining and classifying legal operational processes into categories based on a variety of factors. This will help understand the completeness, accuracy, and precision, and automatability of process models and can also explain process discrepancies and lack of performance. More importantly, this exercise will provide a picture of which business processes are ready for automation and digital transformation, and will clearly illustrate the work that needs to be performed for processes that are not ready. Companies that do not examine their processes before implementing automation solutions tend to focus on the processes that cause the greatest problems – but automation is not always the solution and in fact may vastly accelerate failure.
The goal of this session is to provide a framework of PRA as it applies to a digital transformation strategy and encourage the user to focus on preparing processes for digital transformation before implementing technology.
