Clear, down to earth and practical advice on a wide range of topics such as leadership, innovation, strategic planning, financial management, legal project management, among other topics, is difficult to find in one book. This book should be on everyone's bookshelf who has a managerial or leadership role in a law firm. In fact any lawyer who wants to better understand effective operations and management in a law firm should possess a copy. Readers will quickly begin to underline and highlight many areas that will benefit them in their work in a law firm and the book will quickly become dog-eared.
Description
The author is one of those rare executives who not only understood competent administration, but also high-level strategic thinking. It is a rarity to find both characteristics existing in a person. His breadth and depth of understanding operations and strategy is unique among law firm leadership. He has always been a prolific writer and his thoughtful erudite writings have been greatly enjoyed over the years. His breadth of understanding and knowledge regarding administration and leadership is as fulsome as anyone could be. But it is his down to earth advice about "what to do" that adds immensely to the value of his writings. No wasteful jargon, self-aggrandizement's, but simply good clear commentary and advice.
