It is easy to continue to do things the way that you have always done them. As an example, the Covid pandemic has forced people into finding work-arounds to many problems but it is not necessarily the case that your business has made the changes that are right for the longer term.
The need for change often comes because you face threats – for example, the small claims limit has been increased, or the scope of Legal Aid has been changed or because margins are tightening as costs increase by 10% a year.
So, how do you reflect on your business and ensure you cope with changes that affect the viability of your firm. There is a lot of literature on change management but for those managing smaller organisations, it can be hard to understand how to apply such lessons in practice.
RockMS can help you. If you want to sit down and review where you are as a business and try to frame your priorities – we have been there. If you want help to implement a new case management system – we have done that. Whatever you need to do to improve the efficiency and profitability of your law firm – you can rest assured that we have the experience and expertise.
We can help you through the process of identifying and managing positive change. As an owner/manager of a law firm you will need to face up to the reality of the cycle of emotions that change means for the people in your business. You can’t avoid it – you just have to work through it, using tried and tested processes that we follow; with as much sensitivity and patience as you can muster.
You can face this process on your own – but the fall-out will be much reduced by having the support of people who have been through the same processes over and over again. RockMS has faced and overcome the challenges that change presents to an organisation. Let us help you too.
