Visual Aid: Workflow Management Can Be Different Now

Law firms have developed workflows in much the same way for years and years.  And those are standard task lists with timekeepers and reminders attached.  For someone who is trying to learn a workflow – or even to better understand them – that can be kind of daunting.

Like: ‘Hey, learn this new thing’ – and: Wall of Text!

Now, most people are visual learners.  And the text-based model for workflow management doesn’t work for everybody. Fine, okay.  But, what’s the alternative? Video is a good option: it’s the most visual of formats.  And for visual learners, it’s a bonanza + the easiest way to learn. And, there are a million different ways to create video content (phone, tablet . . . camcorder?), as well as an equally significant number of methods for publishing video (including privately) via media like YouTube and Vimeo. But, perhaps the best option for allowing your team access to your innermost workflow-related thoughts is Loom, an asynchronous video publication tool that is being used for exactly that purpose.

So, if you’ve got trouble stitching together your law firm workflows, maybe you just need a new loom? Plus, Loom can be used for other work conversations, as well, in much the way that businesses use Slack.
