Heidi Gardner should need no introduction. But in case you don’t know Heidi, see her book ‘Smart Collaboration’.
Following the runaway success of Smart Collaboration, Heidi has recently published a Whitepaper, via Harvard Law School – where she is a Distinguished Fellow, titled ‘Harness the Power of Smart Collaboration for In-house Lawyers‘* [pdf].
It makes for an interesting read.
Of particular [personal] interest are two charts :
1. Top 10 Reasons GCs Value Collaboration amongst External Lawyers
2. Signals of Excellent and Deficient Collaboration with Outside Firms.
*As a side note I understand this Whitepaper is a prelude to Heidi’s new book which is due for publication 30 April 2020 – ‘Smart Collaboration for in-house Legal Teams’.
