GLS Service Provider Function Efficiency Report™ (Delivered)
A full report on the efficiency of your legal department
You need your legal service providers to deliver far more value for less fees.
Related challenges include:
- external providers are notoriously expensive
- external providers are reluctant to embrace change
- to improve you must undertake a “current status” assessment of existing practices
- you need to objectively assess the performance capabilities of your service providers
- objectively assessing the value your service providers deliver is not easy
- you are not sure of what performance audit criteria to use
- finding time to conduct an audit comes on top of existing workloads
- you know good diagnostic tools provide actionable insights
- constant busyness makes it hard to undertake efficiency initiatives
- as team pressure increases, so too does team member churn
- old style legal department management is no longer as effective
Wouldn’t it be great if someone could deliver to you a comprehensive legal team performance report that allows you to generate actionable insights?
The GLS Solution
Service Provider Function Efficiency Report™ ( (Delivered) is a fully managed bespoke reporting solution that objectively, fairly and honestly assesses the current performance levels of your service provider function and provides practical recommendations on how to achieve powerful performance improvements.
Transforming the performance of your service provider function requires understanding your current position. This report provides a data-based report on how efficiently your service provider function is performing and benchmarks it against best practice.
With a particular focus on common potential inefficiency scenarios, in light of benchmark data, we are able to identify practical productivity optimisation strategies – with an emphasis on what is practical and what is known to work.
Our comprehensive diagnostic modules are deployed to your internal stakeholders via desktop surveys that generate thousands of data points – along with selective 1-hour long key stakeholder interviews.
The performance criteria against which our report is prepared is that of a world class “performance optimised” legal support function. As result the report provides provide you with:
- a powerful reference model of what your fully optimised function would look like;
- a detailed view of the critical resources that enable and drive function optimisation;
- an assessment of the presence and/or current performance of your resources;
- an assessment of the productivity consequences of your current service provider function practices;
- best practice markers for key legal department features and basic recommendations on performance initiatives; and
- clearly identified and logical intervention/optimisation scenarios to drive function productivity.
This solution provides you the authority of an expert third party voice on the current performance levels and capabilities of your legal team in an objective and transparent manner. This makes it easier for you internally to justify the resources your team needs.
Critically, there are no ‘negative’ findings – just blueprint recommendations for your team to achieve better, more, faster and cheaper legal dept. operations. Our optimisation recommendations are intentionally pragmatic and backed by performance data that speak to productivity strategies that actually work.
This solution helps prepare you to pro-actively face the future on your own terms and increase the strategic relevance of your team and value derived from service providers. If you are serious about legal team transformation, this is an essential first step initiative.
