Failure to Communicate

Failure to Communicate Leads to eDiscovery Disasters. Here’s How to Avoid it: eDiscovery Webinars

The biggest key to avoiding eDiscovery disasters is avoiding the failure to communicate. Tomorrow’s Avansic webinar will show you how to do that!

Tomorrow, Avansic is hosting the webinar How to Avoid the “Failure to Communicate” that Leads to eDiscovery Disasters (available here) at 2pm ET (1pm CT/11am PT)! This webinar will discuss some recent eDiscovery disasters and best practices for avoiding the failure to communicate effectively that can lead to them. Topics include:

  • Communication Failures in Recent eDiscovery Disasters
  • Common Examples of eDiscovery Communication Failures
  • The 5 C’s of Effective Communication
  • Adopting a “Belt and Suspenders” Approach to Communication
  • Getting a “Clue” About Your Stakeholders
  • Listening: The Bass (and Base-) line for Success

I’m excited to be presenting with Gavin W. Manes, Ph.D. CEO of Avansic. Together, we’re prepared to discuss what we’ve learned over our careers about avoiding the failure to communicate in eDiscovery projects!

A failure to communicate effectively within the eDiscovery project team is one of the biggest causes of eDiscovery disasters, such as court sanctions or even coverage of your team’s mistakes in major publications like The New York Times! With today’s remote/hybrid working world, effective communications are more difficult than ever, which makes best practices for communication even more important than ever.

Nobody wants to hear the phrase “what we have here is failure to communicate”! Join us here tomorrow to learn about avoiding the failure to communicate in eDiscovery projects!

So, what do you think? Have you ever had communication issues in an eDiscovery project? Who hasn’t? If so, check out our webinar tomorrow! And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.

  1. Referencing Strother Martin in a 1967 film is itself an example of a failure to communicate (unless your targeted readers are all on Medicare). I see what you did there. ;-))
