May MALSP Meeting - Building an Effective and Impactful eDiscovery Program in 2020
Effectively managing eDiscovery does not require an attorney to be a computer expert. On the contrary, an attorney can successfully manage eDiscovery by creating a customized, defensible program that mitigates risk, increases efficiencies, and reduces costs. Identifying and managing key performance indicators allows legal leaders to constantly optimize the discovery process and gain ongoing efficiency at scale. In identifying metrics that matter within five key areas, leaders can build on their existing discovery programs and coordinate their legal support teams while adhering to the business imperative for cost efficiency, reducing costs by 30%–50%.
Our monthly discussion on May 21 will include an overview of the 5 KPIs listed below including how to use these indicators to build out a coordinated, programmatic approach that meets the needs for reasonable supervision and cost savings within the current legal landscape.

- Promotion Rate
