A Matter of Timing: Your Adoption Problem Isn't Happening When You Think It Is
Published on Wed, May 18 byNicola Shaver

The problem of technology adoption in law firms has been a hot topic lately. This is not a new problem, nor is it one specific to technology. It’s a problem that likely dates back to the first time anyone tried to introduce new technology, new process, or indeed any change at all into a commercial legal environment.

It’s also not a problem specific to legal. The problem of adoption is fundamentally a problem of change management, and the notion of resistance to change has been written about at length for decades.
