BOL: Zoom Fatigue

While WFH has been an essential step in keeping business moving, there are signals that suggest it may not be a permanent solution – at least as a full-time alternative. This article discusses ‘zoom fatigue’, that feeling of being just “tired” of video conference meetings.

The article lists several reasons why video meetings are wearing thin. My take-away: moving forward and when we’re able, “team day” in the office, will likely become a thing. Face-to-face interaction is much more natural, and relieves several of the factors noted in the article that are creating added stress..

Technolawyer has published its list of the top 10 best technology products for legal practice, as measured by level of interest (a sort of passive voting – if you clicked on it you voted for it). Thanks to Robert Ambrogi for this coverage.

BOL: Effective Remote Training

As the pandemic stretches before us, it is becoming abundantly clear that we cannot wait for a return to the old normal for tasks like classroom training. This is an informative article with suggestions on how to make remote training stick ..

One of the key takeaways for me – pick the right topic. There is no bigger turnoff than sitting through a class on skills you already have. Some sort of skills assessment is called for – which means tailoring your training regime to individual needs. It also means breaking training into smaller chunks so learners can focus on the bits they need – and can skip the bits they already are knowledgeable about. Recall yesterday’s discussion about an LMS?

    HR: LMS

    If you have an LMS or know what one is.. skip this article.

    For all others, I encourage you to read this promotional article which positions the value of an LMS , aka a Learning Management System. Given our pivot to technology-reliant work (is that new?), the need for training has popped to the top of the list. Attorneys or less tech-savvy staff can still call help desk support, but the hit on productivity will quickly add up for those not knowledgeable of the tools of the trade. A Learning Management System can relieve the substantial burden of cataloging courses, how well those courses are completed, who has completed them.. and much much more. Think of an LMS as a DMS for your training content and related tasks.

    BOL: Manhattan is Dead

    Will the pandemic change the trajectory of Manhattan forever? This gloomy article makes the argument that yes – the future of Manhattan is forever changed.

    I’m a natural optimist so my inclination is to dismiss the data and comments in this article hyperbolic, and I expect things to return to normal “after” the pandemic subsides. But what if there’s no “after”.. or perhaps “after” takes years longer than we expect.

    Does your planning take into account the bear-case scenario?
