About the event

Implicit amongst the ‘more-for-less’ client landscape is the ability for law firms to adapt and develop new ways of working. Whilst After Action Reviews (AARs) and ‘lessons learned’ are the bedrock of cultures of continuous improvement in high-stakes environments (and accounting firms), law firms have yet to unlock the power of a practice that captures profit, drives innovation and creates client value.

Facilitated by Paul Lemon of Performance Leader, this practical workshop will provide insight and inspiration on how to create the business case for change, plan your road map for success and navigate potential roadblocks that may arise.

Explore theory and practice including discussions with colleagues on:

  • Why? Six reasons you should care and how to convince others about the value of AARs.
  • What? Dimensions of an AAR, how to set the tone and structure a debrief plus a partner exercise.
  • How? Tips for implementing AARs and overcoming barriers plus tools, business rules and question sets you can apply right away.
