Linked – EDiscovery, Lean Manufacturing and Nashville Hot Chicken – Part One

Nodding in agreement –

“All too often this is exactly how eDiscovery gets off track. There’s a phone call between the parties that outlines general expectations – or no phone call at all. Maybe the parties agree to a general stipulation, or just agree to not talk about it. Later, usually a lot later, the clients and key lawyers dive into the tens or hundreds of thousands of documents produced by both sides and the arguments start. But, of course, by that time the work and cost has already been incurred, and both parties have to defend their decisions.”

Start at the end, please. Sit down and figure out where you’re going before you pile in the car, start the engine and drive down the road. Putting it off, or simply hoping nothing comes up later, is not a strategy. It’s a mistake. It may not cost you on this matter, but eventually it’s going to create a ton of extra work that could have easily been avoided.

And in this industry, extra work costs extra money.
