LawVision Launches LPMAware™ – First E-Learning Legal Project Management Essentials Program
LawVision has launched LPMAware™, a new program to help legal professionals understand how the key elements of legal project management (LPM) can be used to help manage client expectations, communicate more effectively with the matter team internally and connect more efficiently with in-house counsel and client teams. The program was developed as a result of the positive response to last year’s launch of the enhanced LPM certification e-learning course, LPM LaunchPad™ Certificate in the Fundamental Skills of Legal Project Management.
“LPM has proven to be a differentiator for law firms competing for work and a critical tool to help legal professionals manage tasks in the most efficient way; however, many legal organizations are still struggling to make LPM scalable while ensuring all their professionals truly appreciate the value of LPM,” noted Susan Raridon Lambreth, Principal at LawVision and Chair of the LPM Institute. “While partners are not typically legal project managers on a matter, it is critical for them to understand the fundamental concepts to communicate effectively with their clients, as well as with the project managers working on those matters. With LPMAware™, there is now a cost-effective resource to educate across the legal organization – partners, associates, paralegals and more.”
LPMAware™ is a 45-minute introduction to the essentials of LPM, providing lawyers and other legal professionals with a better understanding of how to integrate project management principles, skills, processes and behaviors into their management of legal matters on a day-to-day basis.
“Many law firms continue to struggle to find cost-effective ways to respond to client requests for more efficient legal services and provide the necessary training in LPM to their lawyers and as a result, are looking for various training platforms and courses that fit their budgets,” noted Carla Landry, Senior Consultant with LawVision. “Firms can now offer training across their entire firm for a fraction of the cost to develop a program themselves. As law firms plan their professional development investments, we wanted to offer LPMAware™ as a cost-effective approach to train dozens up to thousands of attorneys and professionals in firms of all sizes.”
