In-House Leaders Cohort

Cohort #3 - In-House Legal Business Professionals. 

The In-house Cohort is focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of legal operations, procurement, and in-house counsel efforts.  The Cohort meets monthly via phone/webex, and participates in the Institute's Annual January Meeting in Miami.  The scope includes opportunities that reside within client organizations as well as opportunities that come from improving partnerships with outside providers.  Example topics include:

  • Strategy:  How to best help General Counsel meet company goals; how to make the shift from tactical to strategic support; how to provide proactive support; and how to identify what obstacles exist for providing better services without going over budget.

  • Performance Management:  Finding ways to help firms achieve their goals while ensuring performance management; identifying or developing an industry standard for performance management; and defining metrics and their related meaning.

  • Reporting and Analytics:  Sharing how people use data in a predictive manner, sharing what reports people are using and how they are using them (e.g., insights that they provide, frequency, target audiences, identification of savings opportunities).
