Knowledge Lawyers, Professional Support Lawyers and Practice Development Lawyers are expensive resources. Organisations, therefore, must ensure that they work effectively and efficiently.
They can encourage this by investing in their training, in particular their training in the theory and practice of Knowledge Management, as well as in their area of legal expertise.
Training and learning can come in many forms. A training programme needs to cover the basics and also give opportunities for life-long learning.
An away-day can provide an excellent opportunity to ensure everyone is up to date on the latest thinking and provide opportunities for building internal support networks.
A series of workshops throughout the year is another great way to build expertise, allowing for opportunities to reflect and implement ideas in between events.
However you deliver your core training, you will need to supplement it with group discussion, mentoring, coaching and opportunities for reflective learning in order to embed knowledge and provide support.
How can I help? I can simply run a single training session for you or I can arrange an away-day or annual programme and source the right speakers from my network (and anything in between).
