The word “workflow” tends to alarm lawyers for whom “workflow” connotes a level of technology understanding for which they were not trained.
In reality, well-designed workflows achieve the opposite effect – they remove the need for the decision-making lawyers to dirty their hands with the technology planning because a well-designed workflow will carry the eDiscovery / eDisclosure operation from one step to the next, leaving the lawyers to concentrate on the decision-making and analysis for which they were trained.
A good workflow needs to bring consistency whilst allowing for flexibility to adapt to different jobs and client needs. Nuix has a webinar on 2 April which is relevant both of those who design workflows and to those who will be the users.
The speakers are Simon Bayangos, Director of Technical Services at Nuix, and Jason Christian, Sales and Systems engineer at Nuix. There is more information and a registration form here.
