  Feit - Legal Information Contracts

While John is doing his civic duty in the jury box, I'll be heading to my polling stating to cast my vote in Kentucky's primaries today. Before I go, let me share today's edition with you noting that today's top stories may not be a perfect fit for everyone's interest but there may be some valuable insights that you can apply no matter your requirements. Enjoy.

  • Centralizing and Best Practices True confession, today's first story hit home with me on a personally, professional level. Becoming "One Organisation" - KM's role in integration of approaches offers some good reminders for anyone working towards streamlining processes across offices, whether they be global or domestic.

  • First Step: Design Sometimes, we jump into projects with a "will do" attitude. Knowledge Jolt with Jack provides an important consideration in project management. Read What is the project? Designing vs Managing to refresh your thinking about the importance of pausing and designing before jumping to the doing.

Questioning the Competitive Advantage of AI

It seems many have an opinion about whether AI offers a competitive advantage to law firms. Ron Friedmann brings the debate to light in Can Law Firms Gain a Sustainable Advantage with AI? I am going to have to give this one a more careful read later this morning. If AI is top of mind for you the opinions shared here via the ongoing Twitter conversation as well as Friedmann's own insights should certainly be of interest.
