Description:   Life After the Rollout: A Three-Part Series

Now that you have completed your Office 2010/Windows 7 rollout, how will you build upon the foundational training you have already done? This series will explore three essential areas that help keep users engaged in continuous learning and encourage greater user adoption.

  1. Measure - How effective was the training? Do users have the knowledge they need? Have the business goals been reached?
  2. Refine - Adapt strategies, materials and tools to eliminate what did not work, and add new strategies and techniques to encourage user adoption.
  3. Extend the Reach of Support - Implement a super-user strategy.

Session 1: Legal Technology Core Competencies: Does Your Firm Measure Up?

Capensys and the LTC4 group (a coalition of leading U.S. and U.K. law firms) collaborated for over two years to establish a set of legal technology core competencies. The goal was to create legal technology core competency standards, to provide a means of up-skilling and certifying users in the main workflows in law firms. The group examined how users in law firms work and identified the related business and user goals. Using this information, they were able to define standard core competencies in the use of technology.

We are excited to share the culmination of their hard work with the ILTA User Support Peer Group.

During this webinar, the panel of LTC4 members will discuss:

  • What are core competency skills
  • How the group determined these specific skills
  • Why LTC4 members are implementing core competencies at their law firms
  • How a core competency program supports the firm’s business goals
  • How implementing competencies changes a firm's training culture
  • How offering CLE credits for technology training can be accomplished
  • How to introduce and implement a core standard-based staff development program
