    Voice of the Client: Amy

    Voice of the Client: Amy

    Delivering customer value is at the heart of being Agile. That’s why for Season 1 of the Agile Attorney Podcast, I’m focusing on the Voice of the Client.  I am bringing you the stories of real people in their own voice talking about the challenges and successes they have had dealing with lawyers.  
    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.  Amy also disavows me of a false dichotomy that I was trying to draw between lawyers and scientists so I will go ahead and take my lumps on that one.  Overall I really appreciate how she thinks about the role of her lawyers in helping her frame the important business decisions she has to make.

    The Agile Attorney Podcast

    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.  Agile is a revolutionary approach to managing knowledge work of all kinds - including legal work.
    The Agile approach boiled down to 4 key principles- 
    Focus should always be on value (specifically, customer value) Empower your team Optimize everything for delivering quality Improve, regularly and frequently, with feedback In Season 1 I am going to be focusing on this last principle - feedback.  Lawyers are notorious for not getting customer feedback.  So in Season 1, I am going to get feedback for you!  Listen for some cautionary tales and be inspired by some success stories from actual customers of actual lawyers.
