There are a number of things in the article below to consider, but this is definitely the most timely:

“A profound lesson from the pandemic supports this theory, when so many people were suddenly relocated to home offices. We discovered (or rediscovered) that productivity rises when we leave people alone for hours at a time to work without interruption. Those gains are lost when we revert to interruptions, expecting employees to respond nearly immediately to endless incoming emails and messages.”… Read More

Where I will disagree with Doug though is when he says few people are talking about this. I have this conversation with clients, peers, and others, every single day, sometimes multiple times in a day.

Everyone is talking about it, but they aren’t talking about it in regards to email, rather it is within collaboration platforms like Teams and Slack where shared files are always links, and those links may be in a variety of locations.

Those linked files matter, but not in the same way an email attachment used it, and legal teams are going to have to understand all of that. Is your team ready?… Read More

Linked: Can the ‘right to disconnect’ exist in a remote-work world?

Anything the government comes up with might protect workers from being required to work all the time, but the devil in the detail is how to allow workers to choose which hours they do work within that? It gets a bit messy, doesn’t it, and really isn’t that the issue with the government getting involved? It limits the possibilities by putting a defined “work” time, when what is really needed is the flexibility to figure out the best time, and location, that allows a worker to get what needs to be done, done, and still have a life that is outside of work. That’s going to look different for everyone, so there can’t be rules passed down from an outsider, there will need to be an understanding between workers, and management, on what works best for everyone, including when they will disconnect.

That does, of course, require some more effort and imagination. Are you up to it?… Read More

Linked: Ongoing M365 Tenant Upgrades/Migrations

It’s not normal for us to be using a platform that works one way, then changes and works another way two weeks later, but that is absolutely the way the Agile development is going to happen. The decision to change will be pushed by the business case for making the change, eDiscovery will be a second thought, if a thought at all.

That means two things in my mind in addition to the things Greg lays out in his post below.

1. You have to test, test, test. Constantly. You have to stay on top of new features, old feature changes, undocumented changes, etc.

2. The legal industry as a whole is going to have to get a lot more comfortable with “good faith efforts” being a little more of a gray area as these changes get made. What we could collect easily before, may require a lot more time and effort today, or it may not be possible today because of a bug in a recent update.

It’s going to happen. Whether you want to talk about M365, Google, cloud document management, cloud review platforms, or even cloud backups. Things will happen beyond our ability to control them, and those things will impact eDiscovery. Are we going to be OK accepting that?… Read More

I do believe a lot of people are burned out, not just from work, but from everything else going on in the world, on top of work. Then they look at their workplace and ask a simple question, does this job make burnout better, or worse, and if it’s worse, what are my options for changing that.

Not continuing to work in that place, is one option that many are opting for.

Can we blame them?… Read More
