Your team’s time is valuable ‒ and yet too often it’s spent on activities and tasks that don’t align with the firm’s priorities. How can you determine where to take action?
Tracking all team members’ time over a 30-to-60 day period will give you the data you need to de-bias judgements about how valuable time is spent.
A Deep Dive on Your Team’s Time
Calibrate Strategies works with your firm’s IT department to configure and deploy a simple, lightweight time tracking software to all members of your team. This allows us to gather and analyze a representative sample of the team’s time to fully understand volume, initiators of requests, and where there is potential to increase efficiency.
We then produce an analytical report that visualizes the team’s time to:
- Identify relevant patterns or trends.
- Highlight which attorneys’ practices and projects demand the most marketing support.
- Ensure alignment with the firm’s goals and plans.
- Provide clarity of roles and responsibilities based on actual tasks performed in anticipation of potential structural changes to the department.
