See what I did there? 😉 The first blog post of the new year for Ipro’s blog discusses just how important innovation is in eDiscovery. How many of you know what this French phrase means?
“Ne saurait faire d’omelette sans casser des œufs”
Translated into English, it means “you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs”! That phrase which you’re probably much more familiar with was originated in the 1700s by French Royalist soldier and politician François de Charette. The idea behind that famous phrase is that to achieve a goal, something else often must be destroyed to do so. Disruption is necessary for growth. From a personal standpoint, that means we must change our habits to diet and exercise more if we want to get in better shape, which is something many of us think about at the start of a new year when we make our New Year’s resolutions. From a business standpoint, that means that we must get out of our “comfort zone” to achieve innovation.
So, what is an upcoming event where you can get some help from speakers focused on innovation, advanced technology and the business of law? You can find out on Ipro’s blog here – AND there’s a hint in the title! Don’t worry, it’s just one extra click! There’s never been a better time to innovate than right now. If you don’t, you might wind up with “egg on your face”. 😉
So, what do you think? Does your organization have plans to leverage innovation in the New Year? Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
