LIKE Forum: how to embed KM in the culture of your legal team

Effective knowledge management (KM) is crucial for the smooth and efficient running of an in-house legal function. Yet incorporating it into your strategy is not enough if you don’t have the buy-in of your team. Everyone needs to recognise the benefits of knowledge sharing in order for it to become part of a team’s culture. How can you achieve this and successfully reap the full rewards of KM?

 

On October 12th 2016, the LexisNexis Learning, Innovation and Knowledge Excellence (LIKE) Forum is bringing together senior in-house lawyers to discuss this important topic and share practical insights. Key areas covered include:

  • Knowledge sharing behaviours amongst lawyers
  • How to facilitate knowledge sharing to improve your competitive advantage
  • Embedding KM in the culture of your team: making it part of the mindset.

The session is led by Helene Russell, Managing Director at The Knowledge Business. Helene helps lawyers and law firms utilise their knowledge to improve profitability and efficacy. She has been writing textbooks and training lawyers for 8 years. Previously, she spent a decade as a solicitor specialising in clinical negligence litigation and 2 years in-house in know-how.

The LexisNexis LIKE Forum will be held in London on October 12th 2016 at 2pm. If you are a senior in‑house lawyer interested in getting involved, please contact sophie.gould@lexisnexis.co.uk for more information.
