Driving Metrics for Your Legal Team

Presented by ACC's Legal Department Management Committee Creating a meaningful performance measurement program is one of the biggest challenges for law department managers.

This Legal Quick Hit will focus the types of performance metrics that every law department might want to consider. Connie Brenton, Chief of Staff and Director of Legal Operations, NetApp Inc.
