Agile Starts With Understanding Your Clients
At its core, Agile is about delivering client value. But getting unvarnished feedback from clients can be tough—tough to ask for and tough to hear.
In Season 1 of The Agile Attorney Podcast, I talk with a variety of legal clients to find out what they really think about their lawyers. You'll learn what they love, what drives them crazy, and the surprising little things lawyers do that can make or break the client experience.
