I’m hearing more and more that legal ops holds the keys to organizational knowledge and this article from Onna discusses why!
Their article (The strategic importance of legal operations in the post-pandemic, hybrid, or digital-first organization) discusses how legal operations professionals are in a unique position to step into a more strategic leadership role for three reasons:
- They’re involved with almost every department in an organization
- They have a risk-averse mindset
- They have access to vast amounts of company data
The amount of organizational knowledge that legal ops professionals manage puts them in a unique position to maximize the value of that information across the enterprise, ultimately bringing advanced speed to legal teams to drive new business opportunities and support employee productivity. That’s why legal ops holds the keys to organizational knowledge!
Up until now, the role of legal ops habitually focuses on risk avoidance and optimization.
