Panel Discussion

Gen AI May Be a Game-Changer for Legal – But Change Management Will Determine its Success

Gen AI is a shiny new object in science, business, and law. It holds great promise for transforming how we interact with our work. But it is not a given that it or any new program or technology succeeds in the workplace without the discipline of change management. The approach is critical no matter what the endeavor– corporations, legal operations, law firms, technology development, or service organizations.

Learn what is necessary to-

  • Develop a vision and roadmap from current to future state.

  • Generate buy-in and sponsorship for a successful program.

  • Communicate frequently and via multiple channels to generate awareness.

  • Understand the impacts of change on hiring, upskilling, and career advancement.

  • Build in reinforcement to manage resistance and to sustain long-term change.

  • Learn from experienced change strategists how to navigate change.
