Developing A Digital Transformation Action Plan
Partner Jeffrey Seul, the chair of Holland & Knight's Technology & Telecommunications Industry Sector Group, wrote an article for Thomson Reuters describing the digital transformation of organizations in traditional industries and the role in-house law departments play in that transformation. More and more organizations have begun to use technology in ways that fundamentally alter and reposition products and services, which has profound implications for in-house legal departments. Mr. Seul argues that legal departments should be the driving force behind such changes instead of being the ones to adapt. His article identifies trends within digital transformation, outlines the type of expertise and personnel needed when assembling in-house teams to guide the process and offers guidance for developing and implementing a digital transformation strategy.
