In this episode of the Perspectives podcast, sponsored by Docusign and hosted on Law.com, we’ll hear highlights from the November 2nd presentation titled, Strategies to Get Your Legal Automation Program the Support it Deserves.
Historically, legal automation and digitization initiatives have struggled to get funding, executive buy-in or even support from their own teams. The pandemic has prioritized technology implementations that help teams function fluidly in a remote environment and improves how work gets done. What data and analytics do you need to gain buy-in and what resonates with stakeholders?
The panelists in this discussion — Mary Jummati, Managing Director at Morae Global; Sonu Nayar, Director IT, HR & Legal Applications at Genesys; Jaime Borja, Global Leader, Legal Department Operations at Genesys; and Jennifer Schwartz, Senior Product Marketing Manager at DocuSign — address how to package your program to get buy-in and budget.
