Using Agile/Scrum for Case Planning

CLE Hours: 1.5

CLE Credit: Non-Substantive

Course Level: Intermediate

Does your legal team struggle with effective communication and collaboration, establishing efficient workflows, estimating legal matters, managing deadlines, or the like? Are you interested in creative ways you can advance your legal career? Join us as we learn about Agile and Scrum. Agile is an iterative and incremental approach to project management that helps teams deliver value to their clients more efficiently and with fewer headaches. Scrum is a framework under Agile, which can help legal teams address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering legal services of the highest possible value.

This session will cover a brief overview of the traditional project management life cycle (waterfall) juxtaposed against an in-depth look at the Scrum framework. We will explore Scrum project planning (matter planning), team roles, setting client goals, product and sprint backlogs (tasks required to complete a matter), sprints (time management), burndown charts (progress tracking), daily Scrum meetings (team collaboration), reviews (client-focused), and retrospectives (legal-team focused). The session will involve an interactive approach where participants collaboratively discuss applying the Agile and Scrum method to a legal matter.
