A big thanks to ILTA for including one of our articles in their recently published white paper, Project Management – Ensuring Smooth Navigation.
If the idea of project management piques your interest (which it should -it’s a great way to streamline matters and organize your practice), ILTA’s white paper is a great place to start. It’s free, and it includes eight articles by some of the leading thinkers in the field.
My contribution: Implementing Start, Stop, and Continue Meetings to Improve Your Operations. In this article I discuss the Retrospective meeting, where the team gets together and asks three questions:
* What should we start doing?
* What should we stop doing?
* What should we continue doing?
Below is a snippet of the article, talking about a real-life law firm and their experience with Start, Stop, and Continue Meetings.
Gregg Shavitz of Shavitz Law Group, P.A., a wage and overtime employee rights practice in South Florida, has begun to incorporate Retrospectives in his 20-person practice. “What our firm has enjoyed about the Start, Stop and Continue exercise is that everyone actively participates and ideas get traction which affect our systems, efficiencies and cultures. Furthermore, there is more buy-in to our execution plan when everyone has a voice in shaping the next quarter.”
