How to Work through Legal Operations Challenges as a Community By Onit July 16, 2020 Business Process Management,Enterprise Legal Management 3 Minute Read How do you get through challenging times? Most likely, with a little help from your friends. The COVID-19 pandemic has critically changed work as we know it. Companies closed offices and employees switched to work from home. A decentralized workforce brought new challenges like the complexities of remote access and virtual collaboration. Businesses had to pivot immediately and reexamine strategies and budgets. As a result, corporate legal departments faced a renewed need for efficiency and cost savings. It is now more important than ever to connect with your peers and leaders within legal operations. Sharing experiences can inspire and highlight innovative approaches to today’s challenges. That why we created Lean into LegalOps. The online learning initiative, offered at no cost and open to all legal operations professionals, connects thousands of Onit and SimpleLegal customers, in-house counsel, technology experts and more.
