ISSUE IN BRIEF

We’ve all claimed to have caught 40 winks under the desk during the all-nighter before that oh-so-terribly important deadline, right? But would you ever want
to, say, wake up in the morning, wander into the kitchen in your pyjamas, growl a good morning to your colleague who’d got there before you, before dishing up the first cup of coffee and both settling down to a few high-priority emails before hitting the shower? The reason I ask is that I was recently at an event that alerted me to the trend of ‘co-living’.

We discuss this idea of close collaboration, as well as how to understand and articulate high value, how not to choose a great successor, tips and tricks when managing transformation, and more.

GAME CHANGERS

Workplace transformation is more than a race to using less space – but that can help, say legal leaders. A change might be as good as a rest, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sit down yet. There’s no let up for legal leaders tasked with transforming their firms’ future fortunes through 2016.

SHARES SECRETS

Neil Smith, finance director at Gateley, talks about how he has adjusted to a more vocal life in the public eye. As the firm gets ready to celebrate one year following flotation, how has Smith adjusted to life as the first FD of a UK legal PLC?

FROM SELF-SERVICE TO A SMILE

Barry Talbot at Informance explains how self-service reporting can transform a firm’s responsiveness. Self-service reporting must prove itself at the bottom line – both the quick wins of missed connections and the benefit of slower cultural change.
