How to Accelerate Firmwide Growth Through Smarter Collaboration
Law firms have amassed talent and capabilities in an effort to advance client value and firm revenues. Now, firms want synergies and a greater return by seeing existing and new talent collaborate effectively across silos. When multiple professionals with a deep expertise and diverse talents work together to solve more critical problems for a client or firm — what is called “Smarter Collaboration,” as coined by Heidi K. Gardner, PhD, — firms earn higher revenues and employee engagement. Yet every firm faces obstacles to collaboration that aren’t always obvious. In fact, firms frequently jump directly to disparate initiatives without really identifying a problem.
