Traditional - Predictive/Waterfall
Take the "complex" out of complex legal matters. Traditional project management guides you through scoping and planning upfront. Formal processes steer the team through the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring/controlling, and closing phases of your legal cases and matters with less stress and greater productivity. Best practices in documentation guide your team through next steps, reducing unexpected events and risks. Traditional project management methodology is best suited for medium to large-scale legal projects and any size legal team, large or small.
Agile - Scrum
In a fast-paced office where circumstances change from one moment to the next, you need a methodology that accommodates rapid adaptation to change. The Agile: Scrum method uses a continuous cycle of planning and execution in 1-week to 1-month periods. The focus is more on controlling work in progress, improved collaboration, and rapid feedback (status updates) rather than prescriptive processes. This lightweight framework uses cutting-edge processes to plan work before each iterative cycle. Its incremental approach allows the legal team to flex as needed and is suitable for small to medium-scale projects and teams of 3-9 people.
Hybrid - The Best of Both Worlds
Hybrid project management (combining two or different project frameworks), helps you create a customized method to support your legal project needs. You might take advantage of traditional project management's initiating and planning phase if a complex legal matter would benefit from a comprehensive project plan but choose to execute and close the project using Scrum's more flexible (Agile) framework. With Hybrid project management, you benefit from maximum adaptation in project planning and execution.
