Bridging the Gap: Talent Strategies to Align Law Firms with Client Needs9/14/2011
The results of the survey, and the in-depth interviews on which this report is based, show that firms’ aspirations are high but that they don’t always meet their own expectations – or those of their clients – in this critical area. The report highlights the areas where gaps exist and demonstrates that talent management is central to the long-term success of any law firm. It offers suggestions for bridging these gaps.
Too many leaders view superior talent management as a ‘mega project’, something that can only be accomplished over many years and with millions of pounds of investment. We believe this is far from the case. Excellent people management can be implemented in simple, logical steps, without massive funding; it is a matter of constancy to purpose and discipline rather than a single breakthrough initiative.
