Recruiting and Staffing Law Firm Pricing and Project Management Roles

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

Please join us on February 4, 2014 at 1 PM ET for the on-hour interactive webinar.  For more details and to register, click here.
