So, I left, for a job I could do from anywhere. And, most of all, I appreciate the fact that I can do this job from anywhere, even if the pandemic has meant doing it from the same exact spot in my house for the last 15 months. Because, when the time comes, I can be where I need to be, and continue working. That matters. That shows that the company trusts me, and I want to continue to earn that trust by meeting deadlines and getting my work done.

That kind of relationship, or culture if you will, seems to be missing from many companies based on what I’m seeing other people talk about, online and off. Yet, every company out there like top brag about their top-notch “culture”.

Culture isn’t what you say you do, culture is what you do together. And if, together, you have no trust between employees and management, well that’s your culture, regardless of what your mission statements says.… Read More

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

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
