It's time for lawyers to get Agile

Nearly half of in-house lawyers feel stressed either most or all of the time, according to research from Law360. This can come from a myriad of sources, but for many Legal Departments, the lack of a structured matter management workflow may be a contributing factor.

If you're struggling to manage your legal matters or your team through a hodge-podge of to-do lists, email inboxes, spreadsheets or institutional memory, with no means to coordinate work across a dispersed or virtual legal team, it may be time to consider a change.

That's where Agile comes in.
