Please join me and top recruiter Steve Nelson of the McCormick Group as we present our second webinar in a series on identifying and hiring the right talent for your pricing and project management roles: Putting All the Pieces Together. We'll focus primarily on law firm roles but the discussion will also be relevant to to in-house legal departments, as there are similar challenges. What skill set is best equipped to drive innovative pricing discussions in your firm? Some firms seek a trainer to help the partners better understand alternative fee models and when they apply. Others are looking for a business analyst who can crunch numbers. Still others desire a client-facing executive who can interact directly with the client's finance and operations counterparts in order to better connect the dots. It's the same challenge for project management: Some firms seek a heads-down manager to capably monitor a project plan and keep the team on track. Others seek a firm-wide resource who can educate lawyers about this new skill. And there are numerous variations on this theme. Additional issues to be covered include:
--Status of project management programs in the AmLaw 200
--The importance of doing a project management audit
--What training do your existing lawyers and administrators need before embarking on a legal project management program?
--The interaction between project management and alternative pricing, particularly from a staffing point of view
--How does project management fit into your organizational chart?
--Where do your project management professionals need to reside? Issues of geography and relocation
