Is your law practice productive or just busy?

We’ve been flattered recently to be featured in the posts of leading practice management consultant Rob Knowsley

It’s all been around the fundamental question of: what can lawyers do to cut a productive path through each week? 

What does it mean to be productive?

Well this is our take on it: Productivity is a measure of how quickly you are closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be. You can’t be productive, and can’t measure productivity without having and communicating clear goals for yourself and your team, and the deliverables required of everyone to get there. 

In this new age of hybrid working, having excellent asynchronous communication and coordination amongst your team has become critical. People need clear goals, clear instructions, and you need to be able to measure whether your team is productive, wherever they are working. The old proxy of a person simply being at their desk or billing a certain number of hours is becoming less effective than ever. 

At Hivelight we provide a very practical solution for creating a high performing high productivity practice. 

We’ve built modern project management for legal practice. A full life cycle practice productivity system. Easily break matters down into milestones and tasks, set deadlines and targets, allocate responsibility, and easily communicate daily priorities to you team. You can even set up matters for tracking business development goals for your practice. 

And the great news is that you don’t have to abandon your existing practice management software to use Hivelight.
