E-Discovery Moneyball: Upcoming Webcast Focuses on “3 Ways to Use Legal Analytics to Drive Results”

Created on September 29, 2016

Content Marketing Manager

In Michael Lewis’s book, Moneyball, he discusses Oakland Athletics’ General Manager Billy Beane’s use of rigorous statistical analysis to find baseball players who added the most value to their team’s success for the least amount of acquisition cost. Lewis says this is a part of the “ruthless drive for efficiency that capitalism demands.” Using this strategy, Beane’s team was competitive with larger market teams like the Yankees on a budget three times smaller. With a majority of litigation costs allocated to E-Discovery, one might wonder if you could... Read More

Created on September 21, 2016

Content Marketing Manager

For me, Day 2 of Exterro’s inFusion ‘16 was off to a slow start; because of a snarl on I-5 coming into the city, I arrived at the Hilton an hour later than expected. Luckily, there was still plenty of time to grab a few strips of bacon and some coffee before heading into the morning’s keynote address, which was definitely something I didn’t want to miss. The panel included two federal judges – US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck, and US District Judge Xavier Rodriguez – along with Mike Klein, Assistant General Counsel at Altria, and Sean Riley, Principal at...

“The secret of war lies in the communications.” – Napoleon Bonaparte In the Information Age, Napoleon’s maxim doesn’t seem all that ground breaking, and yet, in many industries, managers still approach whatever challenges lie ahead by simply throwing resources and personnel at the problem. In the end, they may accomplish the task, but the time spent and the costs may be greater than necessary. And in a competitive marketplace, that can be the difference between gaining new business or losing clients to more efficient and cost-effective teams... Read More

Every successful endeavor – constructing a skyscraper, baking a pie, winning the World Series, or writing this blog-- has a process. It might consist of following a prescribed set of instructions laid down by others who have perfected a successful formula over time or it might be customizing a plan that fits the individual situation’s needs in the moment. Business operations are no different. Back in 1993 Michael Hammer and James Champy released “Reengineering the Corporation: A Manifesto for Business Revolution” in which they argued that reengineering work... Read More
