Are you LinkedIn? You should be. Aside from the professional networking and connection capabilities, LinkedIn can be your online resume, recommendation tracker, job search, answer finder, company search, and service provider locator. Another great feature is the ability to find, join, and participate in various groups, including categories like professional, corporate, alumni, non-profit, networking, and conference groups.
I, myself, am a member of a few groups, and enjoy participating in discussions, reading and answering questions, and seeing who else cares about the topics I care about. In fact, I’ve just created a new group called Law Firm Intranets that I hope can become a forum for questions, issues, discussions, and networking. Won’t you join me?
The fifth and final session in our series titled ”Creating the Successful Law Firm Intranet” has been completed! This time we discussed the importance of measurement and maintenance after your project has been rolled out. Aside from the valuable content from regular speakers Laurie Southerton of Southerton Consulting and Amy Witt from Nina Platt Consulting, the best part was the law firm case study presented by Elizabeth Ellis from Torys LLP. Elizabeth shared some lessons she learned (the hard way) dealing with metrics and maintenance in the process of rolling out her second portal project.
Over the course of the five-part series, we covered all phases of developing or redesigning a law firm intranet project. Each session had great attendance, answered some good questions, and profiled some informative real-life case studies. If you missed any of the sessions presented throughout the summer on research, design, develop, rollout, and measure/maintain, you’ll be happy to know that the audio/video recordings are available for purchase. Send a request to eharder at ninaplatt dot com if you are interested in obtaining any of them.
Thanks to all those who attended and support our first-ever webinar series. It was truly a success!
