The Engine That Could

Thanks to Henry Nassau for an insightful article discussing the value that a collaborative environment at Dechert created for clients.

Collaboration - where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts - is a way to enhance client value, without adding headcount or technology. But its an untapped resource in many firms because hierarchy and culture impede the process of collaboration.

Do you have client teams? How diverse are the teams? How often do they meet? Litmus test: do team members make it a point to join the team meetings? (because they're getting value out of the process as well)..

Compensation - Its All Wrong

Lets start here: compensation plans influence behavior. In a world where your marketplace is changing, its important to look at compensation to be sure your strategy is aligned with the real world.

Thanks to Tim Corcoran for his coverage of a recently published book on the importance of re-designing law firm compensation. Gulp!
