The Agile Attorney Podcast helps legal professionals of all kinds harness the tools of modern entrepreneurship, including Agile, Lean, Scrum, Kanban, Design Thinking, and a whole lot more. Host John Grant brings you Agile tips and advice for a more profitable, scalable, and sustainable law practice.
Voice of the Client: Amy
Today you will hear from Amy who only has good things to say about the lawyers she works with on a regular basis. For me it highlights what's possible when there's strong mission alignment and open lines of communication between attorney and client.
The Voice of the Client: Angel
Today you will hear from Angel who has had some serious challenges in the workplace at the intersection of racial and gender discrimination. There is a lot to unpack in this interview, but one of the things I hear is an internal struggle about how to value the effort he gets from his lawyer. In the end, Angel learns some tips from his lawyer that helps him navigate future challenges in the workplace.
Voice of the Client: Lynn
Today you will hear from Lynn who is in the later stages of a custody battle. I’m excited for you to hear her opinions about her lawyers and the legal process in general. She voices her frustrations both with her case and their implication for the larger society. So listen along as she talks about going through 3 different attorneys and what went wrong. We also talk about what the most recent one finally got right.
The Agile Attorney Podcast
After several years of pondering starting a podcast, here is the debut episode! My goal for the podcast is to have several different episode types that align with how I view Agile.
The Agile approach boiled down to 4 key principles-
1. Focus should always be on value
2. Empower your team
3. Optimize everything for delivering quality
4. Improve, regularly and frequently, with feedback
In Season 1 I am going to be focusing on this last principle - feedback.
John Grant is one of my favorite speakers about agile, law practice, and the future of law. Highly recommend this and his agile attorney materials.
