Rather than be a target of downsizing or outsourcing, the Modern Library is innovative, forward-thinking and strives to carve out new roles within the organization while showcasing the value of resources and staff. Librarians have a variety of skills that can be utilized in innovative ways, and partnering with Marketing to provide competitive intelligence for business development is just one of them.
FEIT Consulting will be joining our peers, colleagues and clients on September 28th at the ARK Group’s 11th annual Competitive Intelligence in Modern Law Firm program to understand the latest trends in “Balancing opportunity and risk by leveraging intelligence that informs strategic decision-making–expanding the competitive horizon beyond competing law firm practices”.
As part of the Modern Library audit, we often times advise our clients on best practices for evaluating current CI units or how the library might engage with Marketing to provide interdepartmental support by providing research and actionable data on current clients and competitors. As we help our clients explore the challenges and opportunities the Modern Library faces, we want to know what our clients need to know on how best to support the ever-shifting business of law. See you in New York!
