June 2022 - MALSP Meeting - Playbooks - an essential tool for successful EDiscovery teams
Every day there’s a new project. They all have unique traits, but most parts overlap time and time again. Many firms and corporations are using an “EDiscovery Playbook” to streamline their project workflow from intake to close.
An EDiscovery Playbook is a living document that helps case teams establish a consistent workflow and empower themselves during the project lifecycle by providing consistency through the chaos.
Memorialize responsibilities, matter intake processes, review workflows, and more! Know who to call and – more importantly – when to call someone. Establish escalation paths for emergency situations. Encourage repeatable processes that save money and time by requiring analytics and technology assisted review when projects meet criteria or price points.
Our experts with experience in law firms, corporations, and vendors will discuss why Playbooks are an essential tool for successful EDiscovery teams!
