Retaining Teams Meetings – Worth the Risk?

My Inbox blew up with Teams/Zoom meeting policy questions during the 2020 Pandemic exodus. Clients old and new wanted to enable remote business continuity while managing the potential risk they perceived in meeting recordings and transcripts. Frankly, most of my global corporate clients blocked recordings and are just now re-evaluating that decision as employees struggle with meeting overload. #Microsoft moved quickly to shift the [...]

The Great Resignation, Return or Reshuffle? Part 2

A recent Zapier survey on the future of work polled 600 #knowledgeworkers from SMB companies. 64% said that remote work makes them more productive. While they feel more productive, how can remote professionals demonstrate that productivity without giving up their privacy?   The Great Reshuffle is about the evolving employee-employer relationship more than just where we perform that work. Monitoring utilization, security and work [...]

The Great Resignation, Return or Reshuffle? Part 1

Microsoft’s 2022 Work Trend Index report should be a wake up for execs like JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon spouting, “We’re not going to pay your not to work in the office.” More than 31,000 respondents from 34 countries prove that “There’s no going back!” to pre-Pandemic Koyaanisquatsi cubicle work for professionals. The job security bubble has burst and 52% of Gen Z/Mellennials are considering changing [...]

Did Pandemic WFH Kill MBWA?

Born in the 1980’s, Management by walking around (MBWA) always seemed to have noble aspirations and feet of clay. I am all in favor of execs and management descending from their office sanctorums to have meaningful bidirectional engagement with their direct reports, customers and such.

eDiscovery and New Cloud Apps

The Pandemic driven move to hybrid and remote work has created an explosion of apps addressing the myriad challenges facing digital professionals. Once upon a time I knew every search engine, indexing technology, task manager, note taking or similar productivity product on the market. Those days are long gone. Clients and peers regularly ask my opinion of tools that I have never heard of. [...]

Remember Flight Time Productivity Flow?

After a crazy week juggling too many deliverables and deadlines, I settled into our outbound vacation flight and resumed reading my latest homework, Keeping Found Things Found by William Jones. It is so  dense that I have had to consume it in small bites with lots of time to digest Jones’ thoughts on Personal Information Management. The landing announcement broke me out of an [...]

eDJ Brief: Knovos

Despite Relativity’s dominance of the large matter review market, mid-market players like Knovos seem to be gaining traction with usable, focused products that meet specific customer requirements. eDiscovery functionality, performance and innovation can [...]

100% Retention as a Knowledge Strategy – Case Study

The majority of corporate professional knowledge workers shifted to remote or hybrid working in 2020. Working from home has challenged many HR, legal and compliance departments to adapt their policies and acceptable use guidelines. Video online meetings and continuous chat channels are essential tools to keep internal/external teams virtually connected. Prior to the pandemic, most of my clients viewed meeting recordings and multi-party chat [...]

Go Ahead, Be Obscene in that Teams Meeting

The Obscenity list was one of the first automatic classification lists my team built into our Summation databases back in the bad old Enron days. We were one of the first defendants forced to search and review native raw email from the Exchange journal. Energy traders had filthy mouths and it was an easy way to spot heightened emotions. We also learned to route [...]
