Invoice generation is an awful exercise. Invoice review may be worse. In a series of posts, I’ve used invoice review as a point of departure to talk about analytics and algorithms because the idea of machines taking on more of that thankless task should scare no one. Rather than the machine coming for your job, it is coming for a part of your job you hate. I, for one, welcome our new robot underlings.

Four Lessons Lawyers Can Learn from Software Developers

While many may not realize it, lawyers could learn a great deal by examining how software developers work and solve problems. A few years ago, I spent every day with outstanding lawyers while practicing at a large firm. It was a great experience that eventually led me to the world of legal technology. Now I work every day with incredibly talented software developers. Reflecting on this transition, I have come to realize that for all the differences between lawyers and developers, profound similarities exist.

Using Technology Service Providers Is No Silver Bullet

When millions of customers can be affected by large-scale data breaches at national retailers and major airlines can be literally ground to a halt when technology fails, the increasing dependency of companies across the economy on technology is apparent to everyone.

Head up or head down?

One of my favorite useless platitudes is that leaders have their heads up while managers have their head down – meaning that a true leader will come up with ideas and delegate the execution to people more capable of pulling it off.  While those who have ‘only’ reached the manager level, will still keep their heads down focusing on the work right in front of them instead of thinking the big thoughts.
